    sw motech crash bars -a small fitting issue

    got stuck in today on the DCT and found a slight problem. With German efficiency the fitting procedure is written in German and English with parts labelled BUT there are 3 new chrome mounting bolts -all difference lengths.it would have been easy to give them a number -or just say which length went where! Anyone know? Does it matter?-must do or they wouldn't supply 3 different ones!
    anyway I couldn't fit the right one -when you start a bolt on the front,the back one wont start -and vice versa .I think there is a slight misalignment -or i it me?
    did fit a Leo vince can -that was easy,even for me! no "noisier" at low revs which is good.

    thanks Banksy for that. Did your bolts go straight in? As I only did the RH side -as taking the panel off left to do wiring - so assume the engine won't move in the frame if still bolted on left side. But not a problem can do.

    My bolts all went in by hand, though I did have a jack under the front headers just taking the weight before the old bolts came out. Very pleased with the bars themselves.

    great if you can.
    I fitted a secondhand Leo Vince can -that went stright on and didn't use the £26 gasket ring that the original needs!

    Update. call me a "D***head" but I had the  answer from Banksy -the right front bar mounting fits BEHIND the frame bar,between the tube and the engine  -where the alloy spacer was.Seems a strange place but thanks anyway .
