  • Light bar mount broke

    A few weekends ago a few friends and I went to southern Ohio to ride the Windy 9. The Triple Nickel didn’t disappoint! Well we woke up early on our last day to hit another route, about halfway through the run my light bar mount broke at the right side passing light/ turn signal combo. Lights were just hanging on by the wiring.
    I have since been looking everywhere besides calling a dealership for an OEM replacement with no luck. I see plenty of V Star light bar mounts but none for my 2011 Silverado S.

    Anyone ever had their light bar mount break?
    Any ideas where I might be able to find a replacement?

    Thanks,

      Keep a eye on eBay and Craigs List for that light bar. In the meantime you could have it welded and paint it silver.

        Going on 21+ years and never had a problem with mine, although if something were to break it'd surely be something mounted on the front fork, because, lord, these bikes shake. I never did care for the Yamaha passing lamps and their odd size glass, so I replaced them with the usual 4" ones from J&P but kept the Yamaha "silverado" passing lamp mounts. I had to modify the 4" cans by drilling out the harley-style mounting bolt, but it was a simple job.

          Fairly common R* issue as well as the windshield mounting brackets, weld it up and never have to worry about it again.

            Sounds like welding is the answer.
            Thanks all!
