Motech Crash Bars on 2006 DL1000?
I'm trying to install my engine bars from Motech on my '06 1K. I'm running into a problem however.
I'm starting on the left side of the bike since the long engine mounting bolt pulls out on that side. However the metal spacers that come with the longer bolt seem to be too long! When using the supplied spacer it causes the other support holes to be out too far (about 1/4 inch).
I can tell it's out too far because:
1) If I were to tighten it down as is, the bar that reaches over to the other side is way too close to the exhaust and won't line up.
2) There's apparently a new piece of adjustment hardware in the hole where the spacer goes on the '06 that must not have been there last year. So the spacer is too long.
I'm wondering if other 1K '06 owners have run into this problem? If so, should I just discard the spacer on that side and use a bunch of washers instead?
