    RX Hood Swap

    Could someone look at the bracket for the hood retaining rod and see if it is hooked to the top most hole in the bracket? There are two holes one in the middle and the other all the way at the top.

    I belive the brackets are not the same and will not allow the hood rod to connect. If you make it fit to the middle hole the "lever" balance is off and the hood is way to hard to close.

    Odd,
    I suppose the weight of the hood makes it that much differant?

    It is really hard to close with the lighter hood, almost like it is in a bind, but I know it is not.

    We may need to get the bracket from a RX to make it feel right?

    I will look at it again.

    I am going to patch holes this weekend, but mine will not be 100% for a few weeks I bet Jerry gets there before I do.

    nah, i won't have it painted up for a while. Going to save that project for when it gets too cold to ride. I will have the hood mounted up before the weekend though.
