I thought about doing that to my FZR just in case I need to tow my wife's FZS. Just don't get caught towing a person IE such as a skier.

Yea absolutely ridiculous that Yamaha omitted that on the FZR. I wanted it not only to be able to tow but also as a tie down when parking at a dock. You'll need to modify the FZS hook part from Yamaha to make it work, it's too short. I bought two stainless bolts then threaded and cut head off. Then cut threaded portion of hook off and welded the two bolts on the hook to extend the threads. There is a gap b/t grab handle and body you'll need to fill with washers or a couple (thin) jam nuts. When my jam nuts come in I will post more pics.

Were the threads on the hook long enough to go through the plastic and hull? How did you do it? Looks great!

Some places are tight in these rules, some not so much. I exercise caution when towing a tube, always within reach of an extra boat. I only tow as novelty, brief and controlled.
Tow hook is most helpful for tieing up or for rescue missions!

Most law enforcement won't notice, or doesn't have enough product knowledge to know the difference. Unless they have you detained for inspection, they would never stop you for that.
