Mounting sissy bar billet plates

1880 Views 14 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  stp1971
Purchaed the OEM Suzuki billet sideplates and low passenger backrest. When I took the first two bolts out of the left fender strut, it appears that the inside mounting nut of the front one slipped forward a bit and now I am unable to get the new (or old) bolt back in. :eek:crap:

Anyone else have this problem, and hopefully a solution?

Had to drive all over town to get a torque wrench that I could use on this only to find myself dead in the water.

Any suggestions appreciated, I have a daughter dying for a ride when I get the backrest on.

Thanks Tiger, I was able to finally get the bolts in, and followed your instructions on the other side. Much easier.
