sw motech crashbars has new mounting points

has anyone mounted the new design sw motech crashbars, they redesigned the lower mount where it used to bolt to the footpeg bolts, now clamps to the lower frame.I now have to cut reliefs on my ricocette skid plate to fit the bars. Was just wondering if anyone else has done this and if so how your cut came out and would you do it differently Thanks Craig.

I always wondered why they didn't do the clamp mount in the first place.

I just installed a set of SWMo crash bars about a month ago on my 2014 klr650 and they bolted to the foot pegs. I am disappointed now to learn that they have a newer design. If they were introducing a new product it would have been better to be offered the choice of the new one vs. the old one at a discounted $. Even if I would of had to delay the new bar delivery, I would have liked to have the choice.
