    R&G Adventure Bars problem

    Ok guys, having issues with the right side. The lower forked end will not stay fully engaged. I loosened the right top mount enough to get everything lined up properly fitted with the bottom fork fully engaged then torque both engine mount bolts. I think everything is alright until I removed the top allen bolts. The upper bracket shifted with a clank. It appears the right side is too short.

    Any suggestions?

    I would start by emailing R & G : ( info@rg-racing.com ) and see if they can provide
    any dimensions of what the length of the bar should be, from to upper mounting to the lower forked mounting,
    and make sure that you haven't been sent one that has inadvertently been manufactured too short  :028:

    I had the same problem with mine. It only fit halfway in the slot.

    Mine only fits part way on the bolt as well.  What I'm saying is, the closed end of the slot does not touch the bolt.  But, the bolt is entirely within the length of the slot.   I just torqued it down and it has not moved.

     Thanks for the replies, glad I am not the only one. I emailed R&G Monday and they requested a pic. Today, they replied wanting me to send them a measurement. I will keep everyone posted.

    That's good to hear  :028:

    From the measurements they had you check,
    were you able to confirm that the bar had been made too "short" ?

    Can you post information and figures for what the measurement should be,
    and how that compared with the one you had, so that other Members
    who have reported a similar issue can check theirs ?

    Cheers  :821:
