Just put the rears on. Took all of 20 minutes including cleaning and trying them with and without the rear foot pegs. The wife never rides on the Concours, but you never know who you might pick up. So I left them on for now. Will get to the Canyon Cage in a week or so. Anyone sell black rear foot pegs?

A couple fresh pics from this morning...







The fronts blend in so well that the rears almost look - - out of place - - kind of too large. But no matter, this is a case of function over form, but lest "form" than the bathroom bars.

I pulled all the plastic off of my bike yesterday in preparation for installing my new Canyon Cages. I got the right side all done and started on the left side. I noticed that as I threaded the new 10mm x 70mm socket head bolt (used in steps 16 & 21 of the supplied instructions) into place that the bolt was very hard to get started. I pulled the bolt out thinking that maybe it was the thread locker that Kawi used that was making it difficult to get started. Not so, the threads on the bolt were not cut properly on the very end of the bolt. I tried cleaning the threads up a bit but I didn't have the proper sized die to do the job. I tried to force the bolt in to place but it started chewing up the threads of the motor mount and I stopped. I pulled the bolt out from the right side and the threads on it were perfect and worked fine on either side of the bike. I had a few choice words to say about the maker of that bolt as I started to put everything back together and remove the Canyon cage from the other side of the bike. 

That's my luck sometimes...

I sent Ryan an e-mail asking for a new bolt.

I received mine as well last week. I have not got a chance to even open the box. We are moving and in the transition process. Hopefully, this weekend I get to cut open the box and at least oogle at them.

Question for you - did you guys get the brake recall taken care of before the bar installation? Do not think it should matter, but thought I ask.

I did not, but as you said. it 'shouldn't' matter.

Ok now this is getting depressing. I think I was about #3 in the group order & I'm still waiting for mine to arrive. I guess I'll just continue to wait.  :popcorn:

What name did you use to place the order? I'll do some digging to see what's up with your order and let you know why it hasn't shipped yet and get an ETA for you...

Your product was actually shipped out nearly a week ago. If it doesn't show up within the next day or two I'd try giving FedEx a call to see if they show it as delivered or still en route. I'll message you your tracking information.

New bolt on the way.
