Can anyone post or send me a picture of the DJM flip kit (FK1027-97), showing how the front spring perch mount is installed?

I am familiar with the BellTech set-up for the front spring perch, but cannot quite picture how the DJM front spring perch mount installs...

Any feedback on the DJM kit would be great to hear as well. I am planning on installing the flip kit on an '03 and I understand it fits just like the previous year models ('96-'02).

Thank you!

Very simple. The DJM front spring mount slides over the stock mount. The mounting hole is offset so it can only be bolted on in one direction. The mounting bolt goes through the holes that held the spring mounting bolt in the stock mount.

Got it - I guess I don't understand how one bolt holding the DJM perch mount to the OEM existing spring perch can hold the DJM perch solidly, without having it pivoting on that bolt, making noise, etc.

I believe I understand your description, but seeing it would be very helpful. Otherwise, do you feel it is a properly engineered solution or any thoughts on how it compares the the BellTech solution for mounting the front spring perch?

Thanks again for responding - without seeing it (and believe me, I have done many a Google search looking for appropriate pictures), I'm just a bit skeptical of the DJM perch mount vs the BellTech version, though I'd prefer the DJM 3" drop to the BellTech 3-1/2" drop.
