I didn't forget you!

Damned work is killing me.  They've had me in over 11 hours a day, almost EVERY day since July 1st.  Haven't ridden the GPZ since.

Send me your address.  I'll get into the shed this weekend and pull 'em out and ship them off.

 Michael if you still have them I would be interested in buying them. Let me know how much you want for them and we can then sort of the logistics.

If you have problems finding the relocation bracket, let me know.
When my front turn signal stalks broke, I replaced all four with new signals.  the rear ones I went with a shorter stalk and slightly smaller lens which allows it to fit behind the bag in the original hole.  Now my relocation bracket is just sitting in the shed gathering dust.

Before you guys get too far ahead of yourselves, do you have the rear 
turnsignal relocation bracket? If not, the original mounts won't work. I 
went through all this a year ago. If you try and raise the bag to clear the 
pipe, the cutout on the back of the bag for the turnsignal doesn't line up 
anymore. Making an entirely different bracket might work but don't try and 
copy the OEM bracket, it will NOT work with a V&H pipe. I looked around for 
a long time for a 5 Star rear rack so I could mount some Givi's but never 
found one. I also took the mid-pipe to 3 different muffler shops to see if 
they would put a little more "bend" in it to lower the can. Nobody would 
touch it for various reasons (were afraid of crushing/cracking it mostly). 
My only solution was a new exhaust (Micron) that would allow the OEM bag 
set-up to fit.
Good luck.
