I suppose you could grind it down. You'll see what you need to do when you get the other flange. Really the hardest part of the whole swap is getting that damn flange off the bike. Grind carefully and take your time.turner1968 said:Thanks RJ! Know of a place I can purchase, non Harley? Is this an easy swap? I was told that I could grind down my stock flange. Is this true and are there any instructions on this mod?
