Engine Gaurd In Great Shape!!!

Very minor scuffs and mild pitting... I think it looks GREAT all in all.

Last one of these I saw sell on Ebay a couple of weeks ago went for exactly

$152.50
+ $18.33
shipping

I am selling this one for 150 shipped.

I had a buddy ask me about this a couple of weeks ago so he will get first crack at it.

Otherwise.. First buyer with the cash gets it.. Ill put it on ebay later this week if I have no bites.

Thanks!

Hey MaDeInSin,

Not a buyer, but it would be great if you could get a dimension from the right side bracket, the one that is not welded. I need to get the dimension from hole center to hole center.

Help a brother out would ya' ?

Sooooo just to make sure I am giving you the correct info...You need on the right side... from the center of the top hole... to the center of the bottom hole? If that is true then the answer is 4 3/4 inches.

Attached is the picture of how I measured it.

Let me know if this is what you needed!

You know what, on second thought, I should probably be more clear just to be sure.

I was looking for a hole center to center on just the bracket itself. Not from bracket to guard. Like, if you took the bracket off the guard, hole to hole of just the bracket.

Is that what measured three inches?

That flat bolt on bar or plate is about 4 inches long, hole to hole is about 3-1/2, is really hard to measure on bike! Sounds like that plate did not come with guard? That one to me would be the last one to bolt on, so you would have some wiggle room to play with. I cheated a little when I installed that piece, took that plate and where the frame bolt has to be backed out, ( also have to loosen exuast, did not have crush gasket to replace it with ), took a metal cutting wheel and cut out a notch to just drop over that bolt. Made install a breese!

04-3,200 miles bought July 2011 with 928 miles. Loaded with acessories to many to list here, see my albums for more details! I also make a custom tank bib specific for the 750 if anyone is interested, ck my albums for some pics.

Thanks for the reply romeobravo.
I bought a guard that had no hardware. I have to make that bracket. I do have mounting instructions that designate the bolt sizes, so I can cut the right size holes, I just didn't know how far apart they are suppose to be.

Cutting a slot in the hole to "drop over" is a great idea, but I thought the bolt would be too short. I'm gonna' try that.

Thanks again, great tip.

That bolt in the frame is plenty long! You are going to have to make a couple shims!! You do know that right? Will have to look but am sure there is at least 2, basically the same thickness as that plate. Both foot pegs need the shims on rear bolts.

Yea, I got the shims covered. Actually, I plan on using a couple of thick washers on each side. The only piece I'm missing now is the right side bracket.
