Install of Fastway Rack by Pro Moto Billet, Part 1.

I purchased a new 2012 WR450F in the spring of 2013 after selling my 2003 WR450, due to an injury I'm a little late posting this.  I would like to thank the guys at Pro Moto for their help and for delivering a superb product.  I had all these products on my 03 also with the exception of the dampener it was a Scotts.  Not 1 product failed in 10 years of hard riding!

IMG_0940.jpg  See the rectangular washer?  The directions were a little fuzzy for me, this is where it goes!

It took me about 1.5hrs to install the rack and it's a durable handy little thing.  It also adds a convenient lift point.  Well it did on the 03, let's see how well this one holds up!  lol

First off- thanks Trailamigo for posting this thread. It was pretty helpful. The manufacturer directions weren't bad honestly, but they were annoying to read (formatting needs an update, its all crowded into a tiny block). And your added pics were much appreciated. 

I used a Dremel Tool with a cutting wheel to make my number plate cutouts which made short clean work of the cutting  

It prob took me 2 hours to get the job done on my 2015 WR450F. Mainly because I was fighting the last two bolts when replacing the seat (holes didn't want to align), but it wasn't a very hard install. 

Thanks for the step by step!
