Hey. Thanks for reply. Yeah, i saw the ebay listing. On a budget so hoping for something cheaper.

I tig'd mine. . .i'm pretty skilled too. The weld broke. The fracture is in a high strain area and i'd rather not have to fix again and again.

Thanks again. Guess it's a tough part to find. I've been looking for one for about a year now.

After you weld it again bridge the gap on backside with slot from cutoff wheel about 3/4" on each side of weld insert 3/32 bronze rod segment and jb weld in place as vibration damper it's hillbilly but works well

I'm sure it broke just where the cast ribbing ends on the back. That piece vibrates so much the ribs should have been designed all the way to bolt hole. It's a good casting but you need to get it hot enough to almost replace most metal around break. I have about 2500 mi on my fix now with a roamer mount and Zumo and it shakes less than it ever used to Good luck!
