After reading several of the installation posts on the Givi Crash Bars I was prepared. I had an M8x1.25 tap and die ready. I put all the Givi bolts in there new homes before installation. I had one fail on me. So I carefully tapped the troubled hole, and sent the bolt through the die. And Bob's your uncle. The rest was pretty straightforward. I do have a center stand, and I did set a bottle jack just to, under the engine. Easy peasy. Thanks for all the information. ps. Yes, one side at a time.
