    It is hard to source M8x160 countersunk bolts and I order 100 of those for each batch. Since there are some minor differences between each batch of bolts, I machine inner diameter of sleeves according to each batch of bolts. Then I machine inner diameter of plastic bushings according to outer diameter of sleeves. I do all this to ensure everything fits well.

    So, I prefer to send complete lower assembly, instead just the bolt. E-mail me, and we will arrange something, don't worry. :) Congrats on new bike!

    Hi Perun
    What does a set of top and bottom mounts cost for a 2015 model with postage to South Africa?
    Cheers Thumper

    Its easiest to place an order through web site - you can pay with Paypal or Credit Card. If you order tonight (19:30 here at the moment) it will be sent tomorrow morning and you will have it in 4-5 days.

    Can you confirm that both the upper and lower bolt kits fit the new Husqvarna 701 Enduro? Is the same need there with the factory bolts?

    As to the first question, they are on my bike and fit perfectly. I don't know of anyone reporting problems with either bolt set on the 701, but the bike is relatively new (everywhere) still.

    Sorry for late answer, I was away from internet for some time. As DirtJack said, they fit. Are they necessary? I can't say. I am not aware of any broken bolts on 701, but bike is still fresh. On the other hand, Husky kept KTM's design of tank - frame connecting elements and didn't improve a thing.

    Receive my package from Perun and just finished installing the tank bolts, luggage rack, and heel guards for my Husky 701E. Nice items, clear instructions, I'm a happy customer!

    Hi Perun, looks like a solid set of products you're churning out! I am considering soft luggage. In your opinion, would the subframe reinforcement kit be sufficient in order to tie let's say 30 - 40 liters soft-luggage to a luggage rack on the back? I do have pannier racks mounted currently, though I would like to get rid of them in the future (make the bike more bulky, and don't use them 90% of the time). Just wondering whether the rear subframe looks sturdy enough to you. Thanks!

    Sorry for very late answer.

    Well, it depends on how and where will you ride. Staying on tarmac is one thing and hard off road riding is something completely different. Also, it depends on how will you carry that weight, what bags will you use?

    Currently considering the Motonaut Rack Kit or the Green Chile Rack Kit. While most of the time I am mostly on-road I do off-road sessions several times a year, including one or more longer trips (~2 weeks) with >50% offroad. And that is what I am interested in, as that is the only time that it needs to carry that amount of luggage.

    That will work out just fine, all weight is close to the bike. No worries.

    Good explanation! I replaced my bolts a year ago at 17k miles never having had a problem. I also had no discernible play in the bushings at that time, though it does get loaded down with travel gear from time to time. I've wondered if having mounted the Wolfman side and tail racks at the 300 mile mark has made a difference in supporting the rear.
    Either way, replacing the lower bolt is a maintenance plus as it is much easier/faster to remove/install the through bolt vs. the 2 bolt setup, and the upper bolts are peace of mind.

    I think a luggage rack that attaches to the footpegs helps this issue a lot! I only ever broke the upper mounts on my 690 before machining my own solution that worked perfectly. Never had a bottom bolt issue.
