I'm looking at the options for the lower bolt/bolts/bushings. The 690 wiki only had the info on the bushing replace.
Twins has a replacement one piece bolt and long bushing. I recall seeing someplace here a simple mod using a 5/16" long bolt and something for the center bushing. Anybody know the size of that? I hate to shell out $60 (KTMTwins) for $2 in parts.
I replaced the lower tank bolts with a better grade bolt on my 2008 model and had no more problems...you don't necessarily have to use a thru bolt & nuts...
