Welcome. Where does the bar mount? A picture of the bar would probably be helpful.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

depends on how it was made, is it one piece with the tabs set to go outside the existing spacers or in place of the spacers, or two piece?
holding it in place and/or dry-fitting it should tell you if you need a longer bolt.

do all the cheap ebay bars mount outside so that a longer bolt is needed? That's what I would prefer. Can you pick up a bolt at a hardware store or is it a special size?

I did a quick browse, some mount inside the tabs and include replacement bushings, most mount outside the frame tabs and "should" include the longer M10 bolt. Yes you can buy a longer 10mm bolt at the hardware store, and cut it down to what you need.

I bought one of the cheap engine guards/highway bar off of Ebay for about $25. These are from China and the quality control is non existent. While it looked good, the mounting tabs were out of alignment and were welded at a slight angle making it impossible to mount. That one got returned. got another one and the tabs align and it fits without having to force it on. I had to get a longer engine mounting bolt--could only find 150 mm, but it's fine-- and also had to get two longer bolts for the upper bracket. The u-bracket was a little small and the upper mounting bracket mounting plate was off about 10 degrees so it doesn't fit flush on the bike frame--but still it is workable. My brother-in-law got the same engine guard and everything lines up well. So if you order one of the cheap China brackets, just be aware that you may have fitment issues and will probably need new bolts.

All this being said, it actually looks pretty good when mounted. However, I don't think it will really provide much engine protection and certainly none for the brake peddle and shift lever. If you want real protection for the engine and levers you will need to spend the money for an American made bar. However, all I wanted was something to mount some highway pegs to, and for $25.00 it's hard to beat.

Mine came rusted with the chrome flaking off. Never tried to mount it, just returned it.

Highway Pegs on Muffler Tubes?

Any reason highway pegs could not be mounted on the muffler tubes?
