The rear was a PITA for sure. It was a puzzle. You sort of have to angle the bar away and then rock it into place. Once you do it, it's like, "oooooh, I get it" and then your arms are burning from laying on your back frustrated and getting hit in the forehead with the bar. Funny stuff.
The front is easy, but many bolts to remove with the stiffener and the splash cover. I had to get a breaker bar to remove the 10 bolts from the stiffener. The bar goes right on, and then the stiffener and then the splash guard.
Torque to specs for sure. Read my story and you'll see I broke a bolt. The fix was easy and the sways have been a dream. I have pushed them pretty hard and they feel great. There is always a touch of doubt when you do something yourself, but so far, so good.
Enjoy! Post some pics of your ride. Let's see it!
