Mounting the LightBar is a simple process requiring no special tools or any modifications to the motorcycle. The black powder coated steel bracket mounts almost invisibly to the crossover frame tube located behind the oil cooler. The instruction brochure includes many helpful hints on wiring an auxiliary lighting system on the R1200GS.
