Clutch perch picture?

I'm putting on wider bars, and figured it would be easier to just split the perch / disconect the electrics where the Phillips head screw is.
Now I can't figure out how it was on there. "How to turn a simple 1/2 hour job into a 2 day project" by Uncle Ernie.

Anyone have a photo just laying around the house? I think this is from an R65, but I assume they're all the same. ?

Not sure what you are asking... yes, according to the part numbers, the perches are interchangeable /6, /7 and R65... but the alum part doesn't come apart, it "widens" and then pinches the bars. The phillips screws simply mount the electrical whatevers to that perch...



There is a little wedge (pn 16) that slides in there, which when the bolt is tightened, grips the bars to keep the assembly from rotating.

(and you picked the picture of a /5 and /or first year /6.)
the wedges are not offered anymore, most folks don't even realize they are in there.
Then they usually fall out when the perch is removed.
Used ones go for as much as $10.00 each on the fair market.

Haven't had that wedge for... since the bike was built?

I couldn't stretch the wire / cable far enough to get the perch over the end of the bar, so that's why I took it off- so the perch could slide on and I planned to re-attach the electical bit after.

Except now I can't figure out exactly how it goes back on- nothing is ling up right. Maybe I just need a fresh start. I had been sanding off chrome before that on the 7/8 bars. (El diablo cheapo)
