I installed my SW bars last night, and the package came missing two bolts, a spacer, a washer and a nut. I was able to scrounge around my garage and make due, but I was unimpressed. It might have had something to do with the big hole in the bag that all the fasteners were in.

Call them and tell them what was missing, they might send you out a new bag of fasteners etc. Even if you dont use them those nifty aluminum spacers really come in hand on other projects.

I used two left over fender bushings from the high fender kit and the allen head bolts pictured next tot he bushings.

This allowed me to use the blind nut as I prefer to not drop a nut a thousand times trying to get it started. I'll contact Twisted Throttle later on and see what the resolution is. For now, I can ride, which is what my head really needs.

Yeah, the bolts are really not a problem, I can easily get replacements. The thing that concerns me is that the new bars, from a new "fixed" batch shipped from Germany were identical to the ones I sent back.

Does anybody have close-up pics of the bars where they pass close to the fuel cutoffs? I'm very tempted to just keep these bars as I'm not really convinced they will shear off or damage the cutoffs in a crash.

Nice post. Thanks I will use it for my install. Funny that SW Moto has such niggling quality issues.

I just bought and installed a new set of sw-motech crashbars to mine 990 and at first i could not get them to fit.

There was no way that the bolts nr 2 and 14 in the picture ( sw-motech manual ) was lined up when i used the spacers that was shipped with the bars. On the right side i almost made them fit with brute force but then the crashbar hit the fuel cutoff. But i made a new spacer nr 16 in the sw-motech manual and after that everything was ok no problem with the fuel cutoff and easy to install. The new spacer was 3 mm thinner then the one sent by sw-motech.

Bought my set from a German power seller on ebay for 105 euro really cheap if i compare to what i have to buy for a set here in Sweden
