I hope that works. My concern is that the oe plate
isn't strong enough for that big bar. Remember the oe
one is 17mm and everything else is engineered for that
bar. Oh, btw, my LR plate broke today after I wrote
the first post, that makes 3 I know of.....

PS I highly recommend Trevor Frank's custom plates for
those of you in need of something more stout. He's
doing mine as we speak, well not really, just when he
gets back from skiing ;-)
