Question SW Motech Crash Bar Install help!

Hi All,

Need some advice here. Installing the SW Motech crash bars on my 2016 Vstrom and, per the instructions that came with the bars, started installing the left side first. However, once I took the engine bolts out on the left side, I've notice that the holes of the v-brace (attached to motor) no longer line up with the threaded frame holes. Any advice on how to get them back in position? I can post pics if this sounds confusing.
Cheers,
Dennis

I had this exact problem
And they used allot of locktite on those bolts
I put a jack under engine with a block of wood to support the motor some
You will like them, i dropped the bike a few times and barely a scratch on them
