This morning I thought I would try to install the SW-Motech crash bars I picked up yesterday before a ride with my friends. The left side install went like a can of corn but the right side was a bear. The right side tank fastener threads into a blind nut that floats in the cast cross member and that was giving me trouble. I finally found the threads and then had to wrestle with the rearward frame mount. The frame, tank and exhaust leave little room to work so I found that leaving the front two mounts really loose and running the bolt from the inside out worked well. Regardless, I missed meeting up with the BBDOR crew and decided to take a few pictures and organize my disaster of a workshop.
