Kev, not got a pair to hand to measure, but not hard to work out, if you measure from the top shockabsorber bolt to the hole the stay goes into the guard you will have the hole centres, the mudguard end protrudes about 1/2" past the stud and the stay is cut off at an angle to blend with the guard
So whatever the centres distance is the stay overall length will be about 1" longer

Hi John thanks for your reply the only trouble is that my bike is in bits ready for the painters so can't really get a measure.
Thanks Kevin.

The stays (part 5727) are common to all the later over 150cc bikes i.e. Lt Cruiser 79, Cruiser 80/89, Falcon 79 (and probably earlier) so the dimensions from any of these bikes should be the same as the Cruiser 80 (assuming the mudguard hole position is the same). Sandy
