Installed Jesses on an F650GS . Takes a while but all went together well. Jim VonBaden's instructions are a real plus. So much better than earlier ones, Al. The little 1/4" allen head bolt (7/32" hex, supplied) at the front of the mounts is a little finicky to be sure. I wish it were a metric so I could use some of those tools. Fit and finish is good, especially the mounts and particularly in comparison to the older stuff. Even the welds look good this time .

I also mounted a MOD top plate, set up for the Jesses. A good combination that fits together real well.

Here's a video on doing the racks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIH70...eature=related
It did take me slightly more than 5 minutes, eleven seconds; but you get the idea.
