  • roadwing bracket

    The front bracket on my monoshock is broken. Will I have to remove the engine to fix it? It's a 03 roadstar 1600. It looks like it would be very hard to weld otherwise. Does anybody know if this is a recall item?
    Any advice would be appreciated. Spring is here and I just want to get back on the road.
    Thank you in advance.

    No recall on that. Easier to pull engine. DK if others have done with engine in.

      I wouldn't call it a common problem, but I have seen it crop up on here a few times. Seems like those who welded it back together added in some kind of additional gusseting to beef it up.

        If you have a gantry to lift bike so you can get under it to weld your golden.

          Thanks to everyone who replied. I don't have a lift so now I'll have to make a decision.
          Thanks.

          It looks like that's what I must do.

              I bought a bike lift at harbor freight for 200 bucks and it has a 1500 lbs capacity and will lift up 30 inches, i love it. Trust me, you use it alot from changing oil, tires, detailing, ect. Click image for larger version

              Built my own lift to trike my RS. Bought a HF wire welder and steel for same price as the HF Lift but its stronger and wider for the trike. Click image for larger version
