Well, i'd like to make the swich from the crap known as AC to another nerfbar brand. but the mount on the frame, (near the front of the bike) where most nerfs bount, including Rath, has stripped due to the lack of quality in these nerfbars, and the fact that they wobbled causing the bolt-holes to strip. the stock pegs mount up still so thats not a problem, but now i cant purchase most nerfbars. i would like to know if the little tab for the nerfs to mount is an easy fix. or if i have too look around and buy a different set.

so far the only brands i found that don't use this little tab, as they mount to the A-arm are these.

-ProArmor
-IMS-Roll (too expensive)

i would really like to have a double net nerf as they allow more heel movement compared to a metal guard and are safer than no guard. wich is why i'd like to get this delemma solved ASAP.

any help is greatly appreceated! icon_biggrin.gif
