Uuurrrrggggghhhhhh!!!!!! The upper bolt for canyon cage on right side just snapped while tightening!!!!! >:( :-[ :truce:

Is that our hardware or a stock bolt? Looks like some of the stock hardware. We use extremely high-grade stuff that usually strips engine blocks before snapping itself. However, if it is one of the bolts included in the hardware kit, PM or email me and I'll replace it for you.

It's one of your bolts but no worries, grabbed a bolt from work along with an easy out and bought a tap to clear the other holes. Gotta find out the tork for these bolts to avoid over tightening. Thanx.

The 10mm bolts torque value is 44 ft. lbs. and the smaller 8mm bolts torque value is 18-20 ft. lbs.

FWIW, You can install the canyon cages without cutting the fairings.  Yes, it makes maintenance a bit more difficult but I did not want to cut the plastic

That's correct. That modification is not necessary for installation of the Canyon Cages. It's an optional modification that simply allows you to remove the fairings without having to remove the Canyon Cages first.

Really not a big deal making the cut, has zero effect on the look or performance of the fairing. By the way, love these bars!!! Thanx Ryan.  :beerchug: :great: :motonoises:

Hi Im 2005 Connierider. I bought the front and rear Canyon cages for my 2012 Concours. 475.00 direct from MC Enterprises. Only installed the back bars so far. Easy install but rear pegs are mostly blocked off from the support bar. Looking for new pegs or different peg mounts.

I was just about to post those same passenger peg lowering blocks from Projekt D. A lot of people with our Saddle Bag Guards opt to install those lowering blocks as well. Most people seem extremely happy with them.

I'm curious how the passenger pegs on the saddle bag guards work with that stabilizer bar? Does it create discomfort for the passenger? I am looking at putting these on my 2017 D1400 but don't want to create a problem for my wife's footing.

I dont know anything about stabalizer bars, but the MCE rear bag guard does limit stock rear footpeg space for passengers .

Have the saddle bag guards with the Project D lowering brackets also put on C-10 passenger pegs wider, longer and rubber tops wife likes these much better than stock C-14 pegs.
Direct bolt on replacement.

This is helpful info, thanks. Will look into the lowering brackets along with the saddle bag guards.
