so i had some cheap noname slashbut pipes on my classic 1500... got a deal on some Vance and Hines Longshots and snatched them up....
get them home and there are 2 pipes,
nowhere on my bike to bolt them on to..
it looks liek i need a mounting plate as pictured below to mount this on to my bike.


Vance and Hines has a part number for this [#303-P]
Is there a Kawi part for this as well?
My stock pipes are loooong gone.
I need this part ASAP.

cheers

A couple pieces of heavy strap metal and some stainless steel bolts would getcha goin...
It's outta site anyways.

Fabricate it outta some aluminum or metal from Lowes...

Easy Peasy ...

i took your advice and was VERY successful.
i measured the only distance i truly knew.. the spacing between the bolts on the pipe that attach to the bracket. it was exactly 5CM
i then printed the exact image of the schematici posted above, photocopied it increasing the photocopy size bit by bit until i got a 1:1 scale drawing of the part, hoping it was a legit schematic in the first place. i took the drawing downstairs at work to someone who does metal fabrication.... the end result is a perfect fitting bracket made from steel, bends and all :)

I have a 2006 1500 Classic. The longshots are 2 pipes, the bracket bolted into the passenger foot peg.
