Not looking for one. Just wondering why it is such a "holy grail" of a part? Did a roving gang of bandits go around smashing them?

Saskatchewan repeatedly attempted to steal mine.



I don't know why.

Exactly. Nobody remove the other side so this side gets all the wear to the tabs and grommets thus is more prone to falling off on its own during a bump.

I didn't have any trouble with Canadian roads, despite the Cassiar Hwy in BC (Don in Oz called it a goat track) & the Top of the World Hwy from Dalton City, YT to Chickan, Alaska. But the Haul road just north of the circle ate one of my fork lights!







At a motel along the Cassiar Hwy, we still had both lights.







This was further north on the Cassiar, that is wall to wall mud & the hill is steeper than it looks! The St was starting to lose a little traction.







The beginning of the Top of the World Highway. That is Dawson City, YT across the Yukon river. Thank goodness the climb out from the river and about the first 5 miles were paved, after that about 100 miles of gravel/mud.







Typical view along TOWH. This was in a pull-off. The road you see is not the main road, it just went out into the distance, who knows where?



So much for the pictures, sorry I got carried away. On that trip of 15,000+ miles the absolute worst road was in up state New York.

Currently, I am missing 2 of the 3 rubber grommets holding mine in place. Hopefully it won't fall off when on the road.


me too my uncle wrapped small pieces of gorilla tape around the holes and poked small new holes like grommits

they have worked awesome for 2 years it's worth a shot!
