AS mentioned above the length of the bolt may be too long, check by removing the cap and winding in the bolt to see how far it goes in, if its to long get shorter bolts or washers

Dots to the top as long as the riser is up the right way, check the caps sit flat down on the risers with the bars of, turn it around and check again

if everything checks out and its still loose you could take a little of the bottom of the caps......but that should not need to be done

LOL. I certainly see the appeal, it was an awesome ride. The price tag on that bike is more than I want to spend at this point in my life. $35000 for that bike. Maybe someday.

It does leave me wanting a bigger bike. Iím checking out some options nearby, a VTX and a C90. Iíll see if that will be enough.

Over the weekend my bike fell over and broke the windshield, an 82 Honda GL500I Silverwing. I had a windshield for a 96 shadow in my storage barn and looked at it. It looked close enough to modify it since it was paid for and there,this is what have now,it's a bit smaller as now I can see over top of it but still out of the wind,more solid as it is braced now.Same wind shield.Old one before it was broken.
