ssncob, Thanks for the Heads-Up. I'm surprised that this recall slipped by me. I called Kury on Friday and told them I had the "old style" mounts. After only a couple of questions to confirm that I knew what I was talking about they UPS-Express'd the new mounts that I received today. Though my old mounts were in good condition (no cracks), the new mounts are comparatively more robust, complete with a "molded-in" gusset that stiffens the entire assembly. Kudos to Kury for great customer service.

Thanks for posting this - I've been wondering. I got a new set on my Wing when I bought it in 2006. I bought a spare set from someone on this board right around the time of the recall, I believe. I think I have the receipt for the original set at least and I'll bet both are the old version. I don't need these snapping on my wife.

Thanks again.

THANKS @ssncob
WOW!!! I had not heard of this and have the "old style" mounts on my Transformers since purchasing the used 2010 GL1800.
Couldn't have been any easier by calling Kuryakyn at the number supplied and they are shipping no charge today and arrival in less than 4 days!!!

Thanks to this thread, I just installed mine today. Checked and found out that I had the old style brackets, Called Kuryakyn and they UPS'ed the new brackets in 2 days. FYI, mine had no cracks. Excellent customer service!!

Thank you so much for this post. I called Kury and had the new bracket in 2 days. My boards looked awful when I bought the trike with only 2048 miles on a 2008. I used Zephyr Pro40 and some 000 steel wheel on the end of a toothbrush. Now with the new brackets they look so much better. I was ready to give up and buy some stock boards.

I looked at mine - Old style. I also bought a another set as a backup. I'm thinking they won't send me two sets but I'll give it a shot...
