Help !!

I'm trying to fit these and the bottom square U Bolt won't go where it should be because there's bits of bike in the way !!

Has anyone got a cunning plan (Baldrick - where are you?)

It needs to sit above the bottom engine mount. I have managed to get it in the right place (above the engine mount top bolt) as far as the nearside end of the bolt is located but the offside is below the top bolt on the mounting plate and I can't get any wiggle on it to get the bolt above the head of the engine mounting plate top bolt

To remove the engine mounting plate bolt I need to take the exhaust off - don't really want to do this

Any ideas please?

Can't do pics, I'm a techno numpty

It's a fiddle but it does fit without taking the exhaust off.

It's a bit of a long way for me to come to show you;)

Right

I've wiggled and fiddled but still no joy

Can some one out there with the same bars and bike check something out please

Can you measure the length of the bottom U bolt please?

Also once the nut is on are there any threads that the nut has gone past

My idea is that maybe the U bolt is longer than it needs to be and I may be able to get it in place if I lose 5 mm off each side
