Check around, and you'll find that it's common to have the factory whip / flag mounting points at the rear of the RS-1 bend. A light-weight flag (like you'd put on the kids bicycle) won't cause any problems, but larger flags can. Lighted whips (with or without a flag) will almost certainly bend these factory mounting tabs right away.
Thunderhawk Performance has designed this whip & flag mounting tab reinforcement bracket kit to eliminate this bending. It's best to install this kit before the tabs are bent (at the same time you install the flag or whip). However, if you have already bent the factory tabs and they can be bent back to their stock location, this kit will reinforce these damaged tabs and allow you to keep the flag or whip instead of having to remove it. These reinforcement brackets are bolt-on parts that mount to the frame to triangulate and gusset the factory sheet metal flag-mount tabs to resist bending. Any brand of flag or whip that fits the stock flag-mount hole on the frame can be used.
The Thunderhawk Performance Flag & Whip Mount Reinforcement Bracket Kit is a bolt-on kit that requires no cutting, drilling or welding for installation. Installs in about 20 - 30 minutes using common hand tools. Durable black powdercoat finish looks great, and matches the frame. Made in USA.
