    mine doesn’t have the built up area on top like yours does. I can see a circle but no reinforcements on top.

    The built up area on the side is the same though.

    Anyway, that’s why I asked. Since I have no idea how thick the metal is there, I think I will figure out another way.

    can you get us a pic of that area, nice and close. I'm just guessing but they may have just quit drilling and tapping. If you're seeing a circle there it's probably still the same casting.

    Where's Goats_Hogs when you need him, oh yeah, that's right he's busy having fun.😜

    I guess I have the newest version of the mount because with mine there was no drilling.

    There is a square welded to the back side of the strap . The strap itself is threaded and there's a bolt with a jam nut. Don't remember the numbers but you torqued the bolt then tighten the jam nut. ....... I just got a couple more pics

    This was my own design back in early 2015 and it's similar to later methods. No big deal drilling the hole, just make sure you have a good match on your tap and bolt.


    nice work, it appears you laid a solid foundation for others

    Ok ...... These have been out there for a year. How about a little feedback from the early adopters. I could start tagging all of you but I'm hoping a few will chime in on their own.

    I'd also like to hear from pigmanfu on availability.

    Mine appears to be a knock off yours. I don’t have

    a hole on top of the swing arm near the belt like you did.

    it may be that Polaris decided to eliminate it if they didn't need it. I figured it was originally their intention to use it for either belt guard or fender. Skipping the drilling and tapping would be a cost saving measure if they deemed it unnecessary. That said I seriously doubt they changed actual casting. I wouldn't worry about drilling it in that spot but that's just me. You make the call , it's your sling.

    That's the time frame I hear from everyone. Start 6 weeks of 3 times a week rehab Monday. I have two screws with "thread" holding me together. Finally told I could quit wearing a sling yesterday. Today, the shoulder feels like I lost a bad fight. Oh well.

    I just keep telling myself an old saying, "I felt bad because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet." Time to quit whining and start healing.

    A good attitude goes a long way towards healing , sounds like you got this ;)

    You didn't state which brand or model of fender so good answers are hard to give.

    My fender is from Metricks, it is the hugger model for the SLR. I've got a 16.5 so not sure if they've changed the swingarm. My swingarm is drilled and tapped from the factory.

    I'm including a couple of pics, with their setup no drilling is required. Hope this helps.



    I understand. I'm juggling time with two family members that are pretty sick and being from way out of the area. Can't really plan to far in advance and just firmed up the date and time with BryanL and SlingLow on Wenesday lunch. Guess I should have posted it then. BryanL and SlingLow have been gracious in bending their schedule around my schedule to do rides with me. I really enjoy the times we get together on rides, great guys, SlingShot family rock.

    I was just yankin your chain, I've met the other two boys but haven't had the pleasure to meet you. I said 36 hours because that's how long Google says the drive from Ohio is.

    I hope you fellas have a great day and I'll be saying a prayer for your family :)

    Stopped to get the Mail today and guess what..........NO BILLS . But I did see a envelope with my name hand written on it . As I was reaching for it I was thinking..... This could be really good or it could be really bad. Well you know it wasn't bad If I'm posting about it here. Got some nice stickers from brother Ross and immediately went to the shop.










    You've brought a smile to a brothers face today Sir and for that I thank you!

    Debating on removing the rear tire myself and taking tire/rim in to a place to get the work done.

    Seems like one could just jack the rear end up to pull it?

    Thoughts?

    That's the way I always handle it. That way I'm the only one messin with the lugs.
