    Default Harness Bar --

    I'm adding a racing seat and harness to the NB. I have a Boss Frog roll bar but as most probably know the company is no longer so I can't find the bolt in harness bar that goes with it. To that end I'm looking to have a harness bar welded to the roll bar.

    Would you guys have any local shops that you'd trust to do this right?

    Jimmy said a muffler shop could do it and the price would be great. What say you?

    I don't think I'd trust Bubba down at the muffler shop to weld my harness bar in.

    I don't know of an experienced shop, but I'm sure one of the track junkies will chime in.

    Why not just do this - http://www.bethania-garage.com/harness_bar.htm

    Yea I know it isn't Boss Frog but it is a Harness Bar. Ask William at Track Dog if it would work.

    BTW. Don't listen to Jimmie.

    William suggested taking it to Vorshlag and that is an option for me. I'm heading over there today and will see if I can buy one to see if it will work.. return if not. I'll keep you posted.

    William at TDR called Hard Dog and they have in the past manufactured a bar that would work with the BF clear view bar. I commissioned them to do it again and it turns out that they had one in stock and its enroute to my house.

    The hard dog harness bar will not work.

    I think that William is going to add these to his website so others can enjoy this too.

    It was rainy and cold on Tuesday a.m. @ MSR so I ran with the top up for the morning sessions. The seat and lowered rails allowed me to enjoy the warmth without hitting my helmet on the roof. A definite improvement with top up driving!
