I noticed when I split the two halfs that the four screws that hold the top and bottom half together thred into the bottom half then have nuts on the underside of the bottom half. these nuts all came off on re install. I disassembled again and crazy glued the nuts back on.

On the second install attempt I know that at least one nut broke free again but i believe it is still on the screw.


My questions are
1. how critical are these nuts?
2. With every thing installed and tight using locktite. How much movement is normal when rocking the bars left and right?
3. If it is crucial for the nuts all to be on and tightened right up. How did you do it?

anti vib riser

Thanks for the email link. I have everything secure now and founfd the instructions on his sight but will email him anyway. The only real question I have now is concerning any movement in the bars when rocking them left and right.

Any response would be appreciated.

If a picture is worth a thousand words a video is worth what? A million?

Thanks very much. The video shows the same amount of movement that I am seeing. Any chance you could tell me the gap measurement when not flexing, just sitting static?

All that movement doesn't bother you while riding?

It doesn't affect the bike in anyway but gets rid of most of the vibes. I'm in the twisty stuff all the time and no issues.
