    All 4 sub frame bolts are the same part number. 60003004027.

    The nut is a different story. KTM doesn't list a part number. On the top bolts, aren't the bolts thraded into the frame? And on the bottom aren't they threaded into the sub-frame?

    Its a normal nut pressed into the subframe. For lower mounts that is.

    And I might be wrong but think that the bolts holding the subframe are M10x1,25, fine thread that is.

    But have a sidestand relocator that uses that place and needed to change the nut since the bolt was a normal thread M10x1,5.

    EDIT: had to look up and no nut listed for the Adventure either, and thread pitch is correct so a M10x1,25 nut should do the trick.

    the nut appears to be some sort of insert nut that looks pressed in?

    So what is the solution?

    I tried to jam a nut in place with the OEM recessed allen head bolt.. first ride out it fell out (yeah it was loctited...)

    now revisited it, there seems to need a bush to fill the frame to reduce the amount of slop...

    I still have no idea what type of nut to use.. I tried liquid metal to "glue" a nut in place that I tapered with a grinder.. and it fell out...... I can't be the first to have this problem..:deal

    Have a look at aerobolt australia pty ltd,they have threaded inserts,would it if applicable be of any use to use one of their inserts in the damaged area with a longer bolt/hardened washer?

    Thanks Johnno. I gave them a call. What a fantastic business with great service. They are sending me the correct size inserts...

    I will rip the subframe off today.

    Joe,

    If the subframe is like the subframe on the smaller KTM's (<530), there is also a metal plug to reinforce the aluminum tube. I've read of some repairs where a new metal plug was fabbed up without the threaded insert, and only the metal plug was threaded.
