I installed my heli-bars on my 03 R1 yesterday, but I think I might be missing something. I installed everything according to the directions, but there was no way to "locate" them rotationally. In other words, there was no boss to push them against so that they would both be rotated to the same angle. I just tried to get them both about even and tightened the pinch bolts to the recommended torque. Am I missing something?

When I've installed them on each R1 I've had, I did this:
Pick a point that is the same on each side of the bike, such as the tip of the rearset peg. Take a tape measure and measure from the end of one Heli bar to the tip of the rearset peg. Make sure both are equal.

I think that's what you were asking for, right?
