Just installed the Linby Linbar - very satisfied but the directions are sketchy at best. I have a 2009 Aero. A few tips: The original bolt at the top of the radiator will be reused for installation. You will NOT reuse the bolts at the footrests. The package has two longer ones that will replace the originals allowing for the added space of the Linbar. On the right side, you want to loosen from the inside nut - not the outside bolt. I put WD 40 on this and let it sit a few mintues. First attached the bar at top of radiator but not fully tightened to allow for lower hole lineup. Then thread the bolt at the right side footrest. Now do the left side - you may have to use a floor jack to slightly raise the fitting and line up with the hole. Other than that - no problems. Once you have that left side threaded, just remember to go back and tighten all 3 contact points.

Linbar Installation Correction

Just re-read my post and I made a mistake. You WILL NOT use the original radiator bolt at the top center of the radiator. There is a longer one with the hardware pack that allows for the thickness of the bar. Sorry.

Welcome to the forum! The first time I saw the linbar was on a parked Harley this summer in our Store parking lot. I liked its unique look and the built in top rail foot rests. Unfortunately they don't manufacture them for our older 1100 Shadows (older than 2000). Please post a pic of your bike with the bars installed ;)
