The much less expensive Zero Gravity smoked touring windscreen will be arriving tomorrow.... My lower footpegs should arrive by then as well.
Where did you buy this from?The last part I ordered arrived and it was another 1 minute install.
The rear beaker reservoir bracket/cover has weathered quite a bit over 12 years. $13 for a replacement, which has the added benefit of being complete, so it actually hold the reservoir.

You got some pics? If I remember correctly, one of the zx6s I’ve bought had a m4 slip on muffler that had a weird mounting bracket setup, kinda like what you described.One thing I did find odd, when I went to adjust the lever heights for rear brake and shifter..... the rear brake side OEM peg carrier has additional nuts backing the tapped portion of the frame.
When I was installing the lowered peg on that side, I had noticed the upper bolt of the carrier to frame mounting point was a bit loose. I tightened it up that day; but when I went to do the adjustment, I decided the right answer was to use some thread lock on those bolts to ensure it didn't happen again.
When I loosened the upper bolt and started backing it out of the hole, I heard and saw a nut fall out of the bike from that same area. Seemed very odd to me, to have an extra lock nut on the back of such an assembly. Particularly with the difficulty of getting to the back side of that tapped portion frame rail, due to the proximity of the swingarm and exhaust resonant box. That nut threaded onto the bolt I removed, fairly conclusive that it came from where I think it did.....
I looked closely at the lower mounting point; sure enough, there's another nut there. With that as my basis, I re-installed that nut onto the inside of the frame on the upper mounting point, locking the bolt to the frame from the back.
I've since looked at the parts diagram on Partzilla..... no such nut exists. There is also a bracket of some kind stacked with the footpeg bracket which does not appear to be on the diagram. It appears to be flat stock, probably at least 0.040" thick and has a tang pointed down towards the exhaust.
Has anyone else seen this stuff?
I buy the vast majority of my OEM stuff through Partzilla.com. Usually about 30% off retail. It can be irritating on how slow they ship; no rhyme or reason... and I would have paid as much to ship that part as it cost if I had bought just that one item.Where did you buy this from?
it’s really hard to pick out but if you zoom in looking behind the rear MC you can see an edge of the nut. This bike had an M4 GP installed when I bought it— I’d expect you nailed it.You got some pics?

Yea its got those weird bolts on it. IMO somebody at m4 was smokin something ferocious when they designed that mount. If I was you, I’d get the oem bolts. The ones m4 supply are really easy to strip and its hard to put torque on them.
I bought a second passenger seat form a forum member for like $50, and I removed the cover and padding. That left me with the hard plastic base to mount things to. Same idea, but a .lot less expensive.Reading the reviews, you either take parts off your pillion pad,or source the brackets from somewhere else....
You get the plate, screws and spacers, but no brackets.
