Fat bar adapter problems.

Recommended Posts

I was using a generic fat bar adapter made by pro taper for my yz250 but it won't work on the L. The stock bolts are too big to sink into the recession on the riser. The allen bolts that come with the kit are made for the top. They stick out into where the fat bars would rest. I went all over town today looking for a bolt with a small enough head to fit in there. 

 

What are my options? I want them to be raised the least amount possible.

They won't work...maybe if you got button head Allen bolts maybe. I ended up buying the Pro Taper universal fat bar kit and worked perfect on my xr650l.

My Protaper mounts used button head screws.

 

If you can't find the correct fasteners I'd mark the bolts with a witness mark and then hit the head with a grinder.

I got it fixed by just purchasing another kit from my local shop. I must have lost the original bolts that came with that kit.
