I didn't notice that till you mentioned it. Talk to Ryan about it, I'm sure that he'll offer you the appropriate discount. FYI, it seems that Ryan doesn't work on Fridays, you can call and leave a VM with your contact info though.

Be sure to mention ZGGTR.org.

The only issue that I'm aware of with the rear pegs is that the stockers will not fold up with the rear bars installed.

I spoke with Ryan from MCE this morning. He says that if we can get at least 15 orders in that he'll knock another 5% off the prices.

Now's the time if you want a set of these.

Here's an updated list of the pricing with the 5%, 10%, and 15% discounts added for those of you wondering how much the sets will be:

4-9 Sets: Front - $332.50
               Rear - $166.25

10-14 Sets: Front - $315.00
                   Rear - $157.50

15+ Sets: Front - $297.50
                Rear - $148.75

Ryan from MCE has been posting in the group buy thread over at zggtr.org. If anyone has questions for him on these bars, feel free to come by and ask away.

He also posted install instructions for the '10 - '12 C14s.

From what I understand, the saddlebag guards are easy peazy and come with a small set of instructions. The install of the front bars on '10 - '12s is more involved and that's why Ryan wanted to post the info before anyone ordered them.

Sorry, I didn't mean to force you to register, honest. I didn't know that you'd have to do that in order to get the instructions. I've attached the instructions here for others.

I installed the bars more than a year ago and just wanted to give MC Enterprises bars kudo's for saving my bike, my leg and my wife's leg from ANY damage at all when an unavoidable stop on an uphill, off camber, gravel road resulted in the bike and us falling EVER SO SLOWLY onto our left side.  The tupperwear damage if the bars hadn't been there would have been substantial.  For those who are going in on this buy, I also highly recommend you modify the fairing piece as shown in the attached picture to allow for future removal of the fairing without needing to remove the front MC bar. This also makes installing the bars a little easier. Install bars first, then replace the fairing piece.  Otherwise....you need to thread the bars through the fairing.  In more than 10,000 miles of riding, I have no evidence of any problems with the modification to the fairing piece.

Keep in mind you guys that this cutting is not required on '08's & '09's. That's right, these bikes are faster too.

From Ryan at MCE.

Actually the cutting he's describing isn't required for any of our guards, it's merely a suggestion for those of you who frequently remove the fairing because it allows you to remove the fairing without removing the guards as well.

However, there is another "cut" that is required for the #1400-110 (2010-2012 Concours) that is not required for the #1400-100 (2008-2009 Concours) which I believe is what you were referring to. Please keep in mind though that this cut is NOT into the fairing. The cut is made into a heat deflector that resides beneath the fairing so once the guard is completely installed, the cut will not be visible (I have attached a photo of the cut that needs to be made, it's in "Illustration D, Feature 1"). I truly hope I'm not coming off as an a-hole or anything, I'm merely trying to make sure the correct information is out there for everyone. I don't want people making unnecessary, permanent modifications to their fairings!

Ryan is absolutely correct in that the cuts to the fairing piece I provided a picture of are NOT REQUIRED for the installation of the MC Bars.  However, if you do not make the cuts you will need to remove the bars every time you need to remove that fairing piece.  Removal of the fairing piece is essential for routine maintenance functions like valve adjustments.  I think it is also required for replacement of the air filter, but I could be incorrect on that.  Ryan's written instructions are very well done and if you follow them you should not have a problem with installation of the bars.  DO follow the instructions, especially since you are removing an engine mounting bolt. 

I'll also mention that for the 2010 (and perhaps newer models) bikes make sure that when you do replace the fairing that you properly align the heat shield to the inner "lip" of the fairing.  If you don't get it correct, you WILL experience a significant increase in heat to your legs.
