    I haven't seen any other brand that fits perfectly AND has the threaded bosses for the dash pad.




    What do you mean by "threaded bosses for the dash pad"?

    I found these on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...TQ:MOTORS:1123

    They are half the price of the A&S barbacks. Any input would be gladly accepted.

    1993 K75S A&S Barbacks w/Threaded Bosses

    OK, I think I know what 98lee is refering to in his statement of "threaded bosses".

    In the picture below, I can see two (one per side) horizontal openings for inserting screws which do not have anything to do with the handlebars. Are those the "threaded bosses" where the crash pad attaches?

    Do not get these! They will NOT raise the bars on a K. If you look at the bar mounts on your bike, they are angled steeply down towards the rear. The rise in these barbacks will just cancel out the drop in the bars caused by moving them back.

    Also they are not relieved on the bottom side at the rear. They will come VERY close to the tank and probably hit the hook of the factory tankbag that you are looking for.

    Yes, those are the "threaded bosses".

    I am impressed as I just found where the two pieces originate: the last owner installed a throttle lock cruise control lever which forced him to remove the cover from the bottom of the righthand mirror. The cable is from the front brake hydraulic hose which attaches to the tube of the front by the front of the fuel reservoir, he has two tie wraps there right now. Impressive gents.

    Question: when one installs the A&S barbacks, doesn't this create a larger space between the cable cover and the crash (foam) pad? Just curious for those who have went this route.

    Also, I am not happy with the original S bars. Do this barbacks significantly help even though it is only an inch up and back?
