HEED Crash Bars for XL125V

Just a heads up for anyone buying HEED crash bars for their XL125V
I have a 2010 XL125V, and the bars are made to fit bikes from '01 - '12, which obviously crosses the two generations. The instructions that they send are based on fitting for the '01 - '06 model, and while they do fit the '07 onwards, the instructions don't make it clear how.

You have to move the tank to fit the upper mounting brackets. This is easier than I expected to be fair, there's just bolt holding it on (where the tanks meets the seat), then it slides back and lifts off. The earth/ground cable is on the left side of the bike, so you'll need the included M6 x 40mm bolt and spacer for the left bracket.

Also, the brackets need to be angled in order to attach the bars, which is not what the photos in the instructions show. You're probably better off swapping the engine bolt first, then putting the crash bars in place and pivoting the bars to the correct position to see what angle the mounting brackets need to be.
