My daughter got me a new Kury (chrome) cup holder. I used the inserts but the mount is round and the handlebars aren't. :banghead: How do I solve this issue? I assume that someone has had this issue before.... thanks.

New bars? You could try to make them round by applying pressure to the high sides but, that could cause a lot of other issues. What ever you do, make sure to protect the chrome. I know you got it from your Daughter (pretty cool of her actually) but, they also sell one that mounts to your reservoir mount. I installed that type (never had a drink holder before). I think I like it, just waiting for body panels to return so I can try all my new stuff out.

[Question] Round cup holder and out-of-round handle bars

I don't know about the 1800, but,
I believe my 1300 bars are round, just not in the bends. maybe get some pieces of old garden hose to use to even it out? Just cut to size.

1800 are round too. I think his may have been slightly bent or over bent. May have come from the factory that way. Hard to tell without a picture.
