grab handles installation

Post by hh_12345 on Sun 25 Sep 2016, 10:33 am

I got a pair of rear grab handles to fit since the ones on my bike were missing.

Does anyone have a picture of mounted handles ? 

There are two metal pieces that slide in the frame and I do not know if they should be removed to fit the handles, or they somehow stay in place.

i've seen this before and wouldn't mind knowing why they are there,

had it on a mates cb500 it was 70,000 miles and still had them 
my bike i got at 5,000 miles had grab rails fitted and didn't have them

the only reason i can think of is it was a option to have the grab rails from new but seems unlikely

 so yes remove them

As I recall they were to bolt the rear mudguard through.

I have no idea which part you're meaning with this. Post up a photo of the part you're talking about

Oh those things..... I thought they came with the givi mounting kits for their luggage racks.

I know that neither of my cb500's had them fitted.

I've just looked at the honda parts catalog for the 1997 (v) model and can't see a sign of them on there.

Thank you all and burning_rubber for the illustration - those were the parts in question. As far as I remember they had to be removed to fit the handles.
