I have an 05 SS fuel bar and there's a QR on the CL. Has your bar been modified?? Maybe you should post some pix of what you have there... lots of people here can help.

oops had a re-read and I'm not sure what you mean...

i bet he wonders where the flag out line is to attach his leash. i thought on those c kites you attached your leash from the "oh shit" ring on the back steering lines either to your wrist or with a regular leash to your harness. which means if you do a loop in one direction you need to loop the other direction to untangle your lines, can't just spin the bar for a 2005 kite. Tho maybe you can use a more modern bar and flag out on a center line.

here's a picture of an 05 ss fuel bar with the wrist leash option
