  • Looks fine to me, whats the issue? If it was Miyata the foam wouldn't fit that well from front to back.

      • Does the handle fit flush against the base when you put it on? That is enough to tell you whether its KH or Miyata,

            I don't mean exactly flush but does where the bolts go through touch the base?

                Yep, you've got a Miyata base.

                    They close at 5pm est. I'd call them tomorrow. I wouldn't screw with trying to make it fit your hardware.

                    Proper fit:

                        No, they will cover shipping as long as the KH base is what you ordered. Just don't drill or anything yet.

                        Personally, I prefer the shape of Miytata (Wallis) bases. They've got less curve in them and since the sidewalls are higher theres more room to grip during SIF.

                            They are slightly wider and longer. As a result of the less curve, the KH style post may or may not quite fit the contour of the base.

                                I have no idea how sanding it down will effect it. Scott Wallis has spacers which allow you to use KH handles/bumpers on Miyata bases. I bet he has some of those left over which hes willing to sell or maybe you could fashion your own.
