    Hi there, we haven't met, but I saw one of your posts here.

    Are you still in the area? I'm in Philadelphia and curious to know if there is a group of riders in SE PA/NJ who are looking for another VStrom rider.

    I'm totally new to this, so if there is a better way to find people, my apologies - and I would appreciate your suggestions.

    Hi Truax...I love working with aluminum, so easy to cut, file and burnish smooth. I just had some aluminum angle (2" x 2") and laid out the light on one leg, then traced around it with a scribe. Sawed and filed down to the marks. Then I pulled the bolt out of the fender mount and drilled the hole to the shoulder size on the other leg of the angle.

    When installing the bracket into the fender, I used a rubber grommet to fill in where the bolt would normally have had the shoulder inside the fender, but since it now has to go through the bracket, the shoulder only reaches the bracket and not into the fender. There are still plenty of threads left to engage the bolt to the threaded fitting on the fork boss.

    Does this make any sense? It's hard to decribe and a picture would be worth a thousand posts, but if you have any questions, let me know and I'll try to expain further!

    PM me back with your order, also put it in the comments box on the paypal. [email protected]. Like I said in the post if someone will post a list of everyone that was there then I can check them off and when I have everyone or by the end of the month I will order. Everyones will be shipped b4 I leave for Kentucky. I redirected U back to the post so everyone could see that we will have long and short sleeve and what color they are. These are top notch tee's. They are preshrunk and I have had some of them that I had made up for my hydroseeding biz that I have worn alot for the last 7 years and the color and the shirt are still in good shape.

    Can I get your email? I would be interested in buying your Wee-Strom in a month or so if you haven't sold it by then.
