Dismantling the fender is the main part of the job - remove the reflector stickers and then take off the fender support bu removing the screws and locknuts. Fix the sideplate of the bar on the fender support using the locknuts (use loctite242). Get the reflectors back on!

The new kit will have an extra pair of reflectors - so you can use these. Remember, FMVSS 108 mandates that all bikes SHOULD have side reflectors by law. I've seen pics and some videos on the web that illustrate the steps to understand them better.  add a comment

First thing to do is to get the right sissy bar - right size and dimensions and also something that looks cool and is color matched. Fixing it shouldn't be too much of a problem. You'll just need to screw it on at the right places with the right tools.
