Yeah, we've come to the conclusion that my bike, being a redheaded stepchild '07, is a little off from everyone else's.Installed my Stiffy Kit this week as well . . . very easy install . . . just take your time taking the rear light cowing apart. I did have to file the bracket holes to get the bolts through but that's nothing I didn't expect. I did have to enlarge the rear rack mounting holes a wee bit to get everything lined up - I found that was eaily done with a slightly bigger drill bit. Snugged everything up and buttoned her up.
That's for the great product and your ingenuity!
