Installing H&B crashbars

When installing the bars the left side bolt that goes on the right is the left side when your sitting on the bike or facing it from the front?

Usually "left" would be your left when you're sitting on the bike.

As to the HB bars, there's only one way they can go. Be careful of the bolts that hold the cross bar in place. Watch the torque. They thread into soft metal.

go down and get some SS bolts to replace the Hepco oem's. I can get mine at the local Ace Hardware. Much better and the allen heads are much better. I also do this for Givi bolts, they are way worse than the Hepco's.

Replace the bolts!!

I went with A4 Stainless from Fastenal. Ace did not have the stainless here in town.

I have an old family owned Ace Hardware store literally less than 5 minutes from my driveway. Lots of motorcycle guys go there for blots etc. They carry a good supply of metric even stainless. Spacers, washers,nuts and the sort. Usually I can get what I want there.Its great.
