When out riding you want to make sure that you are seen by other riders. Mounting a flag to your machine gives other riders knowledge that you are on the dune hill, on the track or trail. Flags come in all different styles and designs. So get out and ride and have some fun, but make sure that you have the right tools like your flag.
This adaptor fits virtually all motorcycle applications
Positions the flag towards the rear to reduce interference with rider.
Bought this so I could take my kx250f on the dunes. Anyone who’s been to silver lake knows how much abuse the flags put on mounts no matter what’s its on. Basically the mount was paper thin aluminum. Might be good for a small light weight flag but I didn’t bother to even install it, would bend right away.
Works for a range of axle diameters, but is difficult to install. I used a pair of vice grips to hold it level while I torqued the nut to spec. It bent and eventually tore the aluminum bracket. Still works, but be careful! No problems so far with my axle nut coming loose while riding.
No instructions at all in box
But only one place it will mount
Well I don’t think this product was for an 2018 Yamaha PW 50 it did fit but rear axle nut tightens right down on top of the mount, so when u turn a rider loose the nut spins off. Resulting in a lost nut for rear axel. Now I have a nut for the axel on order.
I got this to get my flag on my bike to go to the dunes. They say it is universal fit but was kind of a pain to get on. If you go down the right way it will probably bend a little like mine did. But, not much else to get a flag up on your bike.
This could have been a five-star product, but this suffers from an absolutely bone-headed design flaw - it is designed to be mounted on the the right side of the bike only. However, most bikes have their exhaust on the right side, so you need to mount the flag on the left side (I flip the axle if I need to). You can use this mount on the left if you flip it upside-down, but that won't work on some bikes (like a 2004 CRF150F). What Tusk should do is make the two flanges mirror images of each other, and then you could use it on any bike in any orientation. If that's too expensive, they should also make a "left side" version of this product. Disappointing, since Tusk products are usually surprisingly excellent.
Good Value, not good in rocks. Slam a rock with it and you may need to have a spare back at camp. Yes I recommend it. Have tried other types and would rather replace one of these every 3 years than use the other types.
You can bend the flag in and out a little bit as need to keep it for slapping the exhaust or catching a wheel.
The flag bracket seems to be a good design but uses the wrong material. This bracket could be a five star rated product and rule the market for flag brackets especially at this price point, IF it was only made of steel. The bracket ripped in half after only riding for a little bit, but of course RMATVMC made it right as they always do. The customer service rep contacted me immediately and refunded me the cost of the product. One mishap won't keep me from buying tusk products. Love RMATVMC and will continue to use them as always.
I bought this for my dirt bike and made one trip to the sand dunes with it. It lasted about 30 minutes into the ride before it was bent and broken. poor design and the aluminium is very weak. Lost a good flag because of it.
Machine this part was bought for: 2000 YAMAHA YZ250
Put this on my sons 50, he rides with training wheels so it's not like he's a ripper, yet, bracket bent after a couple of days. Just doesn't hold up. First time something from tusk failed me. Look for the steel one instead of this one.
Broke the first day. If you ride hard it will break. And the flag will beat the back of your helmet till it breaks lol. Just drill a hole and use the biggest fender washers you can find in your rear fender. 3 trips and my fender isn't bent or creased.
My CR500 with a 120 paddle kept ripping the flags off. The edge of the paddle would catch the pole and then it was all over. I went through 3 flags, with not one of them lasting more than 5 minutes. It might be good on other bikes but it did not work on mine.
on a trip to silver lake MI i found out that the flag mount sucked. after about 20 min of riding i looked behind me and my flag was gone. and the mount was broke in half. which pi$$ed me off and on my way back to the trailer my bike blew up. so it was just a great day.
