Was an easy install, haven't had time to really ride yet. Seems a little stiff right now. Had it at 20 ft. lbs at first... bike had far too much vibration. Backed it down to 15 ft. lbs and is doing a lot better.
Yes, it looked different than my OEM 2004 part, but it fit fine. It's an updated design, and will look the same as the part you'd get from the Harley dealer right now. Can't get the original design any longer, I tried. This new design is a harder compound, not rubber, so it will last longer. But, it's not as smooth as my OEM. Hated it at first, but after some miles down the road it broke in and smoothed out and I'm fine with it now.
hi guys, yea on the mount.i thought the same thing when i bought one.i matched it up to the way the old one looked as best as i could and re-installed it. bolted right up and works great. i havent had on problem with it. in fact its a little stiffer than the factory one. i would buy another one in a heart beat.good mount at a great price.
