    az-twin, that looks good. You threaded a hole in the HB bracket. Did you drill into the subframe? So one bolt goes through both brackets and frame. The other bolt is just attached to the hb bracket. And the other bolt goes through hb and frame.

    I am running a sw mototech rear rack and remus exhaust. The exhaust will need to be adjusted also since holes do not line up.

    You read my mind. I was going to ask for a pic without the bag. Nice fabrication! I like how you mitered it to follow the lines of the swing arm and at the bottom too.

    Depends on how you crash and if you break the handlebar bolt off when you crash. The TT radiator bar on my bike has a few scars, so I think it is worth it.

    Tee, it's the SW-Motech bars OR the TT radiator bar correct? i.e. you can't mount both?

    Correct. You can only mount one of them.

    Yes, the one bolt just holds the Ohlins bracket to the H&B bracket. I cut the end of the bolt off so it does not go all the way through, then I used Red Loc tight on that one bolt so it would stay. I made it up the CDR like that, so I think it is good.
