    Looking for standoffs

    Anyone know where to get standoffs for a Big Mac tankbag rack !!

    Or, the proper specs to have some machined. I know the male is M5x28, but not sure what other values (female thread depth, etc.) should be? Given the choice of "hex" or "round" what would you choose?

    You may want to either try Bob's BMW or CycleGadgets as I think they both carry them. You can just buy the platten if you need it.

    Maybe I had better find those pictures.

    They are used for quick detachment of the rack, without messing with the fill cap screws and fill cap o-ring.

    Those look like true standoffs, I misunderstood and was talking about the mounting kits that come with the platen. Mine are only bushings.

    I was able to get some non threaded standoffs at Loews.
