Resolved: Murph's tip over bars -- 2 "right inner" brackets?
« on: December 06, 2015, 09:14:52 pm »
I bought tip over bars all around a couple months ago, and am just now getting around to installation. I noticed I don't have a "left inner" bracket as mentioned in the directions for the left upper mount, but rather 2 "right inner" brackets.

Are these brackets the same? I assume they are not, and that I might have to contact Murph. Problem is, I live in Canada, and had them shipped to the border, which I can no longer reasonably get to (bike is in pieces...), so I have my fingers crossed.

Hmmmm, been a few years since I put my bars on, but I remember a pair of left and right brackets. I haven't looked closely at the brackets to see if they were an exact match, but I suspect they have a slightly different 'offset'. I can try measuring when I get home.

Thanks, 
Mike.

Near as I can tell, the lower brackets both seem to have about a 2" offset.
But it wasn't easy to get a real accurate measurement with the fairing in place, so that's not real precise.

An update in support of Murphs! I contacted him, and within a day it was sorted with the correct part being shipped to me in Canada. Thanks for the awesome support Murph!
