2 x 12mm = 24 to barely get flush on all frame pockets..the 20mm would be too short
Sorry, it certainly seems strange. 1 x 20mm and 3 x 12mm were all that came with my fitting kit. As you can see, the 20mm one comes out a fair bit on the left side.
Seems the frame pockets on yours are a bit deeper for some reason.
are u able to take one bolt out and verify the length of one of the bushings.. ive been on the phone with the place i bought it from with out a solution yet
Yea certainly, which one ?
Spacers are 20mm on the left and the others are all 12mm.
right i have 3 - 12mm.. and 1 - 20 mm.. but if u look at my pictures.. all of the frame cups that u put the bushings into.. require at least 2 of the 12mm bushings for it to be close to flush. for a total of 24mm
on urs.. that 20mm sticks out.. on mine it would be 4mm below the cup outside edge..
all the other pockets using only 1 12mm.. the bushing would be 12+mm from the edge of the frame cup
have email to place i bought and hepco germany themselves.. waiting to here from them..
basically i need a 2nd set of bushings
Recently had the same issue as you but on a gs. I bought a set used and missing some spacers. As long as you know the length of the spacers you need, go down and buy a bunch of washers to fill the void. I bought stainless so the wouldn't rust. Worked for me.
great idea with the washers..
stainless steel washers.. that probably set u back say $30 :)
yep they were a little pricey but it works. I also had to chop off the mounts on the tank bars and weld on new mounts to fit. Repainted with stove paint and they look brand new.
Will this bike be doing much off road work, corrugated dirt or carry big loads?
If so, you might want to think about fitting frame reinforcement plates. TT sell them. Mine is built to Aussie spec, so came with them.
They will affect the way you mount the crash bars.
just installed engine guards and tank protectors. After reading the posts on here I was quite nervous, but no reason to be, even with directions in German, it was as easy or easier than installing the Touratech hard parts!! looks great and I love it.
I don't know if this is appropriate to ask here but, I have an issue with the bolt at the top mount point.
I can't seem to tighten the bolt fully it will just spin off and come loose after I think I got it to tighten.
It doesn't come off but I know it's loose and I suspect vibrations coming from there.
Could it be that my thread has worn off and if so can I re- thread it somehow..? It is bolted into the engine mount yes..?
Hope someone can share their experience..?
Mine is a 98 model R1100GS
