This item is a quality product. Good heavy metal with a flawless finish. You will have to take off fender and drill 2 holes to mount. I used a strip of blue painters tape on top of fender to mark my drill holes on center. Drill thru tape then remove. Use some locktite on nuts so they remain secure. I mounted mine on top of fender where the back of ornament is just in front of the forks. This has the eagle head looking forward. If you mount it to far forward the curvature of your fender will have the ornament looking down. This item is 6 1/2 inches long and 1 1/2 inch tall at head. I mounted this item the same time as I mounted my fender rail so you wont have to remove your fender more than one time as it is a little tricky on my Kawasaki VN900D.
