Yeh, made no sense to me that they didn't come with the bumper assembly in the first place - Seems an important item designed to enhance structural integrity. It was an 'accessory' you had to order separately (assuming you knew it even existed!).
Would you be up for Christmas a little early? PM your address. I have an extra set which has just been sitting around now for the last 3+ years. Still in the original packaging w/all hardware. I already have a double set supporting my swingarms. Had ordered these as back-up to use when the ones mounted would start to wear down...they don't wear!
