Hey guys, I've had a couple questions about mounting hardware to go with the engine guard. I know you need longer bolts, but can't seem to find the exact specs on them?

Haha, without a bike I can't just take the old one into the hardware store to match!

I'd like to be able to include them for the next owner if I can!

The upper mounting bolts to the frame are 8-1.25 x 65mm Hex Head bolts (x2), with 5/16" SAE flatwashers (x2). I recommend 70mm.

The lower mounting bolts are 10-1.25 x 35mm Hex Head bolts (x4), with 3/8" SAE flatwashers (x4), and 7/16 x 3/4 x 1/4" spacers (x2). For each spacer, I used two stacked 10mm split lockwashers. Worked fine.

These parts can all be found in stainless either at Lowe's in specialty bolts or at the Grainger on-line catalog.

That's awesome! Exactly what I needed!

Upon further digging, I was also able to track down a few pics of the original install instructions in these threads.
