I had posted these links once before, but since someone just asked again, I thought I would post them with an improved subject line. These additional instructions and photos are courtesy of Joe Shoemaker -- he did a good job. I was uploading other pics to the the BBR area so will only leave these here for a while, so if anyone wants them, you need to store them off on your computer.

#5 Depending on who you got your risers from, you will either see a veru similiar photo in the package or the instructions will tell you the cover can not be reused. This photo shows how to measure and cut the triple tree cover.

Thanks for going to the trouble. Just a suggestion. Would you consider posting all the pictures at one time with explanations and then every now and then post its URL? Makes it like a web site and easier for you to do time to time. [I know since I do it with my modification post.] There are always new people coming on board who will be glad to discover your knowledge. That way also makes it easy for people to save as an html document. It's amazing how much good info is available here.

Cover mod?

I don't remember exactly how it went but I think I remember someone on the site writing that instead of cutting the cover, they had used longer screws and some sort of spacer. The example they used if I remember correctly was like a half or 3/8" spacer cut from the barrel of an ink pen. Does this sound right guys???

Lennie, I used a pen similar to a bic, but was more rigid. I cut spacers about 3/4" long, then used longer screws. It sets the whole cover up without cutting it up. It MAY scrape slightly when turned full. :lol:
