Default Re: Warning to All! - Everyone look at this!

I can not see how you originally had the front mount, but I know that bike you are using. Since the Front of the Engine has a stand off of 0.5 inch or so, it will not matter what grade bolts you use.. They will break again. I know. Because I have been through exactly what has happened to you. The Exact same thing happened to me. I replaced my front bolt with a grade 5 . This only made it last a little longer before it too went Kaput. Once the Front bolt goes, the rear ones are quick to follow. ....... I finally made a Bracket to take up the gap using my wire feed welder. This never broke but was much more complex than the final method I found that works best but does require drilling a hole and using the 3 hole adapter. You can see the final method on the last page of my Install pages at the Bottom. It uses the 3 hole adapter and flat washers and never breaks, and that is using the factory bolts which are Grade 1 or 2. No need to use Grade 5. Thanks.. Enjoy the ride..
