    Installed and good to go... had to move the bike, reason for not getting them painted... it's a whole lot easier with handlebars installed.

    Yes, TOOLS....They take the washers IF it has the all straight slot like Rob's...(same washer AS a 750)..........
    IF there are angular cuts at the outer edges of the otherwise straight cuts, then no......

    I was at the shop yesterday.. didn't see Aaron.. I know they changed their phone#. If u have an issue hit me up..
    FYI, this top clamp is on my wife's bike, it still isn't painted and I check it periodically .. nothing has surfaced. Aaron did a nice job!

    That is some nice looking welding. The D shaped washers are Honda P/N 53235300000. A few years ago they were very difficult to find. Honda must have run a batch of them. cmsnl.com has them in stock. They are pretty proud of them at €6 each. I would be careful about torquing the upper bridge. Most of the front shock to fork bridge clamping goes through the lower clamp.
