Has anyone installed tatou originals?!

I'm having a bit of an issue, I need someone who has installed tatou originals before..

I will attach a pic of what I mean..

So there's an anti rotation bracket on the track, which bolts to the bracket on the bikes a-arm. This bolt that goes thru the bracket on the track, I'm assuming must be a loose fit yo allow the bracket to travel on the bolt when turning right or left? Looking at it I'm imagining if that was bolted solid to the a-arm back, you wouldn't be able to steer due to the track bracket moving when turning ..

Anyone know? The reason I need to know is because they don't make the brackets anymore for my 2015 bike for this older track system, and I need to get them custom made to fit my a-arms.

The only thing about it is that wouldn't give much of a steering travel, that slot is only like 5", do you know this for sure?

Ok right on, do you happen to have a pic? I have to get my brackets made , they don't make them for it. Have couple more questions.

-is the back bracket bolted solid or does it have the same bushing setup as the front?
- so when your track is facing directly ahead, I imagine your bolt is dead center in that slot?
-the bracket on the track, on your bike is it directly under your axle? On mine it seems to be slightly to the front of the bike, maybe an inch or 2 in front of the axle. As u can see in the pic.
- lastly, you don't have any problems with steering? This slot really doesn't in my mind seem like it would give you much steering travel with such a short slot.. It actually only looks like a couple inches of travel from left to right if you start in the middle.
