Universal Bracket Kit II

As the name implies, Universal Bracket Kit II is not made to particular motorcycle brand or model. It is designed for installation on variety of motorcycle with particular type of handlebar setup.

1. Tubular handle bars which are held to the triple clamp by M8 clamping bolts. Such handlebars can be found on great number of motorcycle models.

2. Cast aluminum handle bars which are bolted on top of a triple clamp. These type of handlebars can be found on Aprilia Futura, BMW R1150RT, Honda ST1300, Yamaha FJR1300, Kawasaki ZX11, ZZR1200, Triumph Sprint ST.

Two Swivel Joints can be mounted above the handle bar clamps and positioned any way they fit best - forward, backward or upside down. Diameter of Crossbar in all brackets is 1/2" (12.7 mm). Length of the Crossbar in Universal Bracket Kit II is 7.5" (190.5 mm). It may be shorted if desired. Minimum distance between centers of Mounting Bolts required for installation of "Base Plate I" (Page 9), "Base Plate II" (Page 10) and "Housing for 26xx" (Page 11) directly on bracket kit Crossbar is 3.25" (82.55 mm). If the distance between the centers of Mounting Bolts is less, then "Extension Joint" (Page 12) should be used for installation of base plates or housing. "Extension Joint" can also be used for adding flexibility in bracket kit configuration. Mounting Bolts supplied in Universal Bracket Kit II are M8 x 1.25 x 60. They are long enough to replace M8 x 1.25 x 30 motorcycle OEM bolts. Spacers are 1/2"OD x 1/2" tall x 8 mm ID.

Bracket Kit II modifications

In some instances dimensions of the Universal Bracket Kit II must be altered in order to install it on particular motorcycle. Various length of Mounting Bolts (60, 65, 70, 80, 90, 95, 100, 110, and 120 mm long) and stacked up Spacers on longer bolts, allows adjusting the height of the crossbar in 1/2" incriments. Various length of Crossbar allows fitting it between steep and narrow handlebars.

In some motorcycles clamping bolts in handlebar clamps are M6 instead of M8. In such cases M8 Mounting Bolts in the kit are replaced with M6 Mounting Bolts and set of bushings added in order to fit M6 Mounting Bolts in 8 mm holes in Swivel Joints.
