The Ringer Sissy Bar - VT600 VLX600
These sissy bars for the Honda Shadow VT600 VLX600 feature a welded ring and the option of a kicked back top! Sometimes you need a little kickback style with that sissy bar, but not quite at the Liberace level! Perfect to strap down a rack of beer, a backpack or a skateboard!
Each sissy bar is made of 1/2" mild steel and TIG welded construction, made by hand here in Pittstown CA, and each bend is done over our welding bench by a real manly man sweating his ass off with an O/A torch!
Each sissy bar is approximately 15" from the top of the fender.
Sissy bar includes:
- 1 Sissy bar in raw steel finish
- Grade 5 zinc plated bolts and nylock nuts for fender to sissy bar mount
- Stainless cap head bolts for mounting sissy bar to axle plate
This Sissy Bar is meant to fit the Honda VT600/VLX600 model in conjunction with the TJBC Curved Bobber Fender, though it may fit other manufacturers models of fenders. It will NOT fit a stock fender. We cannot guarantee a perfect fit with other fenders.
It does not fit the Curved "Short Round" Fender, as doing so would angle your sissy bar to between aproximately 10:30 and 11:00 as viewed from the left side of the bike.
If you get one of our fenders to go with this sissy bar you definitely want our Pressio Bolt-On Fender Mount Kit!
These are cake to install. You can attach them to your axle plates one of two ways:
TJ's Method - Locate the 3rd & 4th from the rear notch on your axle plate on each side and center punch each plate about 1/2" above the notches. You want to make sure the lower bung doesn't hit the adjustment notches and it doesn't hit the curved portion of the axle plate.
Drill a 5/16" hole and then tap it with a 3/8"-16 tap,
Alternate Method - Drill a 3/8" hole and use a nylock nut on the bolt on the backside of the axle plate. Lay a length of chain over the center line of the tire, tape it down and lay the fender on this, it will give you a perfect fender height!
Move your Sissy Bar to the angle you want and mark the location of the holes needed for the upper fender supports. Pull the fender off and drill the holes.
At the rear of the fender you will want to drill a slightly oversize 3/8" hole to attach the Sissy Bar fender supports using the included hardware
At the front of the fender you will want to drill two holes to mount the included L brackets to the fender itself.
Do not weld anything to the fender.
You can either drill holes in the L brackets to bolt them to the swing arm or weld them to the swing arm.
