Questions on the R/R relocate

I've been searching for info on this modification but haven't really found what I'm looking for.

I haven't seen any good pics of the bracket that holds R/R to the passenger footpeg bracket or exactly how that bracket fastens. Is it positioned between the bracket and frame? and does it fasten on just one bolt?

I've also seen the R/R mounted on a plate but I can't find the dimensions (that is the thickness) and exactly how it is fastened.

the only clear pic of a bracket I can find is the one using a U- bolt

Can someone point me in the direction or give me the info?

Thanks

Photos in the Technical section might help

Some have used just bar stock instead of the paddle design

The bar mounts to the frame just above the foot peg

someone help me... wasnt Bulldog working on a few of these?

what most of us do is get an aluminum plate... get a u bolt that will fit the frame... wrap it in rubber where it makes contact, then drill holes.... same for the R/R... you can also mount it to the rear foot peg aswell...

Here's Fergy's write-up, including what you need to buy if you do it yourself.
http://pages.tstar.net/~fergy/writeu..._relocate.html

Oddly, that's not the write-up I used (Fergy's instructions are crystal-clear), but it's a start. If I can find the other one, I'll post that as well (Forum members, anyone remember a post that says, "Here's what you need from Home Depot"?).

The U-bolt design was the only one I was able to find.

I was looking for some pics illustrating the type of mount that went on the footpeg,I wasn't sure just exactly how it was mounted.

I may be better off with the U-bolt design ,it looks like it's a little higher and further away from the the exhaust pipe.

Thanks for the help

This is a really good thread for this problem.

BTW: what tools/socket sizes are needed to remove the r/r from underneath the battery (assuming I do it the older way, not how Fergy did it)?

Thanks!....

Here is the one I make.

http://www.bulldogsbike.com/relorr.htm

I've got three made (already spoken for) and about 7 blanks awaiting powdercoat. The kit comes with hardware and instructions.

I personally didn't like the look of the U-bolt and went with the bracket being attached right to the rear footpeg on the left side.



I'm sorry for those who have been waiting for soo long, but my life has been hectic as of late (not that that is a valid excuse or anything). I'm getting back on track now. More info on the kit to follow...

The bolts holding the regulator to the battery case are 10mm - actually, I'm pretty certain that all of the bolts on the battery case are 10mm. I think I ended up pulling the whole case out, but I'm not sure that's necessary. Someone correct me, but you may be able to reach the bolts by going through the side panels.
