    Rubrail Question

    I need to replace the rear corners and stern section of the rubrail on my '01 GP 1200R. It looks like these sections are riveted on to the hull. Are there special tools required? Has anyone done this and if so, any tips?

    Thanks as usual for the help!

    just drill the head of the rivit with a 3/16" bit then push the remainding part through...

    OK, but what about installing the new rivets?

    piece of cake... any harware store sells them.. the new rubrail will probably come with the rivits, then only need a gun... 15 bucks or so...

    Make sure you use stainless rivets and that you use the same size. With one to big it will dimple the rails a touch.

    Other thing is the corners have a plug in the middle (the black thing) you pry that out and then you can see the river better.
