The problem is that the tapped holes that go all the way through the top clamp are not quite finished properly right at the bottom, so I can't get the long screw through to mount the protector underneath, which is where I want it. I just want to be 100% sure I am looking at this correctly. I don't have the right size metric tap, so I am going to have to go get one tomorrow, assuming I am on the right track here.
More than likely it is the very end of the threaded hole giving you probs.Take one of the longer bolts and run it through from the top, this should clear the threads. The clearance is very tight mounting the odo from the bottom so make sure both pieces are lined up properly. This is easier to do before mounting the clamp to the bars.
