I got these installed a couple of days ago, very easy. Perfect fit, only two places do they touch the bike, and no adjustment was needed.
You will need a helper to hold the wrench on the off-side so you can take the motor mount rod nut loose, and then again to tighten the new one. My nut was very tight, I mean very very tight. Had blue locktight on it, but was difficult as if it was red.
Also a jack to lift the motor slightly SLIGHTLY, to take the load off the motor mount rod as you use the new one to drift out the old one. A good torque wrench as the lower four bolts go into aluminum and you do not want to over tighten them.
One the bike, they are unobtrusive which I like, and am waiting for some highway pegs to complete this task.
I got them for highway peg mounting, not for crash damage avoidance, but if it helps, it helps.
Once I get the highway pegs I will post photos to close out this thread.
