Canyon Cages Install Help...
« on: April 28, 2019, 01:50:59 am »
Please HELP!!!!!!

I just bought a pair of MC Canyon Cages from a Kaw repair shop in Arizona... trouble is, they did not come with any hardware.  Now, I knew this going in but I could not have known MCE uses maybe two (2) or more specialty pieces to install.  the 7/16-14 Step Nut, 1X7/16X 1.56 Spacer and I guess maybe the Plastic finishing cap.  That Counter Bored spacer is gonna be hard to find, I expect.
 
Does anyone know where I could purchase the hardware for the install?  I've already called MC Enterprise and since they closed the business at the end of 2018 they have nothing for me.  I can try to piece together the hardware from the instructions bolt by bolt, washer by washer but what a PITA.
I am in Colorado.  Maybe someone knows a store that would carry most of these items.  ???

That long lower engine bolt might be difficult to find!

Indeed.  I gave up.  Returned the cages for a refund and will purchase NEW w hardware.  Sometimes saving a buck works... But sometimes it doesn't.

Where are you going to purchase them, Ebay?

It appears MCE is shut down and eliminated inventory.  Oh well, the demand is there.  Maybe another manufacturer will step up.
