  • Question on installing H-D crash bar for fairing lowers

    For those who installed an H-D crash bar on their R*, what have you done for the bolt in the middle top portion?
    I assume you drilled a hole in the flat portion on the frame...
    Where about? And how forward (or what was the distance) between the front floor board bolt and the hole in the bottom of crash bar?
    Thanks for your input

    You will almost need to figure out the mounts first at the floorboards before you can get the center bolt hole location.

      Like JC says if there are HD lowers to be installed you will need to fab 2 brackets as shown to move the bar ahead, then just drill through the plate between the frame at the top to fasten. You can space the top out also if needed, a chrome socket works well there.

      Thanks JC
      Great looking bike you have.
      From a picture Ultrastar posted last year, it's seem to be 3 times the distance between the two floor board bolts. I'll see how it goes.

        Take a good look at the bar. Both brackets are not the same. One is longer than the other. Good luck! JC

          As others have said, you need the brackets first, several years ago I used a bracket with 3 holes, two for the floorboards and one - perhaps an 1.5 inch forward for the crash bar.
          Mount the bar with bolts on both sides then you can mark where to drill the hole in the middle then tap it to put a bolt.
