I will not go with OEM if possible. My plans are to find out what the rise and pullback are for stock bars and then look for ones to match. Before settling on one, I will ask for the metal thickness at the wire exit hole. Of course that is subject to slight change if I can get an OEM bar for cheap/free. I can then run a TIG bead around the wire hole to reinforcement.
But when it happened I was actually more surprised than scared at first. Though while headed home the right bar was getting looser as the miles went by.
Anyone want me to post pic's of the "skid marks"? Might need a WIDE angle lens...
