    Thats way wrong. Whats the width on the bars before the bend? Is that the right width? if so maybe you can remove the bend part and drill new holes. I did it on my grab bar. See here: http://www.blasterforum.com/threads/my-1st-blaster.63213/page-2 1/2 way down page. I removed 60mm of the bracket as I wanted the grab bar closer to the bike.

    OK, yeah, I went to your page and found a blaster overhaul, only stock parts I recall seeing was the frame, rear carrier and some brake parts....lol, I thought about just buying a Banshee frame and just add parts when I get the $$$$ instead of paying 2k for one just to strip off all the factory parts and install custom, cheaper that way kinda.
    By the way, nice work, I share your passion but not your wallet :) def. watching to see the completed project

    well, got the right bumper today, went to bolt it on and couldnt tighten it down, bolts are about 1/4" too long and stop at the inner frame so either I buy shorter bolts or I stack washers.....lol, its like test fitting at the factory isnt a standard practice anymore and im inconvenienced again but on a lighter note they did send me a call tag to send the other one back to them

    Buy shorter bolts or cut the bolts you have shorter. Don't do washers.
