I just bought a used 2008 KLR650 and love it. The guy I bought it from had bought a PD Nerf plus Skid Plate kit from Happy Trails. But there are no directions and the brackets that would attach just below the tank on each side are missing. I would like to install this, but I have been unable to get any information or help from Happy Trails. I would appreaciate information from anyone who has installed this mod.

Here's the dealio on those brackets.

The first design was flawed. The bars were made from a rather thin mild steel and they could bend into the radiator and that was Not Good.

HT redesigned the brackets and began shipping them about a year ago with the PD bars. The redesigned brackets are considerably thicker and stiffer.

They also offer them for sale for about $20.

The solution here is to just go to the HT site and order up a pair of the new brackets.

They will be willing to throw a set of instructions in with the new brackets, I'm sure, but the directions are best used to keep your beer from making a ring on the coffee table.

Once you get a set of brackets, we can walk you through the install.
