I would measure, but I built my first bar with the mounts on the outside rather than the inside, so my measurements would be off. Ginz bars are made to use mounts on the inside of the subframe.

Hey Dave,
If you mean the holes the actual sissy bar enters the brackets, I make this 13 & seven eigths inches or 353 mm.
Let me know if this is what you were lookin for.

I'm sure my sissy bar setup will get pros and cons , but its all good,comment away. I have been on a very tight budget building up my bike as of getting divorced soon after getting it. So I used what i had available, it consisted of a second setup i had for a previous bike, 2008 Shadow Spirit. I installed the struts on inside of frame rails after redrilling and tapping two existing smaller holes, then used those as pivot point to adjust the angle or lean of back pad. The tricky part was measurements as to where the supports were coming through fender. Once I got close, I did the old trial and error of setting fender back on to make final adjustments and making the oval openings symetrical to the supports. Really strong, and economical for what I had to work with for budget. Have had zero comfort complaints from anyone on back.

And that is what it is all about. Very clever idea using a standard "Harley" style bar.

Very nice! Look really nice and I really like the idea that you took something not made for the bike and made it work. Very creative!

Furious Brit -thank you for the measurements very helpful info. thanks

Life is good!

Thanks for jumping in. I would have measured mine except my bike is in bits with a good amount of parts in the USA getting chromed.

No worries, I just happened to have my rear fender removed when I read Daves request, Also considering having a special bar made to fit my Ginz brackets just to carry some baggage (not the wife) next year for a 3 week ride around Spain.
Be safe mate.
