    Just a quick question about installing a Ricochet engine guard. Do you guys cut off the loop that's welded to the frame where the rear part of the stock plate hooks into? It seems to be in the way of installing the right rear Ricochet mounting tab bolt. I didn't get any paperwork with it.

    I just bent mine up a little, no problem after that.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    Same here. Just a couple of hits with a rubber mallet and problem solved.

    Thanks. My favorite tool....a BFH.



    *edit* I whacked it up but it still interfered with the screw so I ended up bowing it out of shape with a screwdriver. All is well now.
