The powder coat was done by Denray ( same price for chrome ) the brackets are place between the fender and the tire ... 8)Did you get that powder coated by Denray or by someone else after you received it?
I bought the same hitch from HitchUSA and the directions sucked. Did you place the brackets between the inside of the fender rails and the outside of the wheel fender or did you have room to put the brackets between the fender and tire?
There are two sleeves that the hitch slides into. These sleeves are about as long as the two bolts on the fender rail are apart. They are pretty well hidden, but you can still see them a bit. Each sleeve has two holes in it and the hitch as well. The hitch slides into the sleeves and you put two bolts in each side and tighten down a lock nut to hold everything together.Nice...is there a receiver that stays on the bike or does it completely bolt on and off ????
i have to be agree with you ... i'm using a Dunlop E3 250 and that leave me a 3/4¨ each side ......Nice hitch. I don't think you can use that hitch w/10" wheel/280 or bigger tire though. I could be wrong but I looked at my bike and I don't think there is room between the tire and the inner fender.
