Adventure MotoStuff skidplate question

I installed the skidplate today but the clamps that go around the crash bars are loose. I have tried loosening the bolts that attach the skidplate to the clamps and then retightened the allen screws on the clamps but they don't tighten around the crash bars. Is this normal? If not, any suggestions?

They should be tight.

When I got my skidplate, one of my clamps was tight, the other loose. I guess they make two sizes. Sounds like they sent you the wrong one.

Email them and they'll send you the right size.

Rubber pads are on. I'm going to loosen everything again tomorrow and see if shifting things around a bit helps.

Did you order the correct front clamp for your crash bars
and if you did maybe they sent you the wrong ones.

Mine are very tight so I would second the other folks if you have the rubber pieces on, you might have received the wrong size hardware... of course if you don't want to send it back you could probably stop by Home Depot and pickup some mega-thick rubber to bridge the gap :^).

I didn't even send mine back. I called them. The guy asked me to read the numbers on them. He said I got the wrong part and mailed it to me.
