This flag mount is awful, First off if you don't flip your axle on a lot of bikes it will hit the exhaust. Second, I can never get it to sit right, it seems like the flag is either sitting in front of me or dragging on the ground behind me. Third flags in this mount tend to break like crazy. I would do a seat or fender mount.

Good mount. Stays snug and keeps the flag back and out of the way. The only downside is the flag sit lower than if it was seat mounted ( less visability to others). I drilled a small hole in the side of the fender and put a zip tie there to hold the flag more up right to keep from snapping off.

This is a great way to attach a flag to your bike. It is simple and pretty nice. The one thing i would recommend is to attach your flag to your bike somewhere a little higher up. How it is now it can hit the paddle tire and break but even still i have never broken a flag with this mount.

Was a little standoffish on this at first, but....
Wow, I don't have to pull the axle every time I need a flag anymore. This thing fits perfect and holds the flag great! I put a little key ring in the corner of the side plate to guide the top of the flag and can say in 4 trips of all day long dune riding I have not broke one flag pole. That is proof enough for me!
If you have to have a flag on your bike, then this is the item you need. You dont need to take the axle nut off to put a bracket on, you dont need tools to insert or remove the flag. Just put it on, tighten the bolt and your done.
Great product, though you will definitely want to add support to the flag at the fender level or the flag will fatigue and break off at the clamp. I suggest either drilling a small hole in your fender and running a zip tie through it leaving enough room of the flag to also pass through the zip tie or a small brace from one of your exhaust bolts.
After reversing your axle to put this on the side opposite your silencer, it fits great and stays put plus it's easy on and off. The downside is I haven't been able to keep a flag alive for one ride. The flag either gets into the rear tire or breaks off at the mount due to fatigue from whipping back and forth. I'm still trying to figure out some way to make this work.
