    Hey Guys... in between mahoosive downpours today I managed to get the fairings off in prep for my new ones to go on... My bike came with R and G monstrosities which I've also taken off... but Sadly I now have and empty space on each side where an engine mount bolt should be!! Anyone know the exact size and pitch of these?? I've been looking online and think I may have found them on the fowler site.. BUT not completely convinced.... anyone had to do similar??

    As a secondary thing... look
    what fell out of my bellypan when it cam off....WTF??? I was quite concerned initially but seeing as I've only removed fairing screws it must have been there from something else.... Ive replaced rearsets and the exhaust recently... any ideas??

    Its either your rng spacer, or engine spacer more so. Where you removed the rng crash bobbins the bolt, you'd replace with standard engine bolt. Look at where this hole is, you will see the engine mount, front rhs side. You will properly see and gap between the engine and the frame. If you see a spacer like this fitted anyways on the bike don't worry its probably then a spacer from the bung to frame

    Also i reread and i guess your missing both standard engine bolts. Fowlers have these, All on there site easy to fine on the microfiches. You will need these 2 bolts.

    awesome thanks Vic, The spacer from the bung did cross my mind but there is only 1?? Is the right hand side different from the left? (Sorry not checked as have no light in my garage).. Yeah gonna give the fowlers site a go if I can't speak to them as what I think I need (the two bolts) are only a fiver each :).. (the right is 5mm longer than the left if I'm looking at the right bolts???

    Yeah Right hand side has the spacer only. No spacer on the left. When you look at it you will see the gap between engine and frame. The 2 bolts on frame page
