My friend and I tried removing the crash bar on a Honda shadow spirit 750 and once we realized we would have to get the exhaust removed we quit and tried to put it back and forgot where all the washers and big thick rings go, does anyone have a diagram or a video of someone taking them apart so we can figure out how to put it back together

It helps to know what bike you have for the correct information.

He means the exploded diagram should give you an idea. But why not remove the exhaust? It can be dirty, but it’s technically one of the easiest things you can do...

We might take the exhaust off and finish it, but we still don’t know how to put it back together

Could be worse. My uncle came home from work one day to find his son and one of his friends had pretty much disassembled his entire second car! They had no clue where anything went, so he ended up trashing it... This is a good lesson, too. Smartphones have cameras! And voice recorders. Use them liberally during the disassembly...

Though I’m one to talk... 😳

Contact the manufacturer's website for the crash bars you have, and hope like hell that they have a .pdf file with the assembly instructions.

If they don't, then you'll just have to try different sequences until you hit on the right configuration.

It will be a valuable lesson learned, one way or another.

Guys who have crash bars on their bikes are either the smart ones...
OR the ones who have learned the hard way that a simple parking lot dump
can force your rear brake pedal through the side case of the engine...
and yes, that can happen, shockingly easy.
Funny how those newfangled foot pegs fold right out of the way and
let things get pokey...
