Sounds like you know what you're doing. Yep, you need the long bolt. I don't know how else to get it, but try bothering TT more. If you bought it from them just threaten to return the parts and have them pay shipping unless they complete the order. They seem a mostly decent batch of folks most of the time. Ask for supervisors or for Erik if you aren't getting good answers. Really, it should be easy to get that bolt.

I'm a fan of the Motechs. They were the first brand available, so the only option when I started with Stroms. They didn't have the vibration or ugly issues that Givi had/has, so I've kept with them. I think I've installed.. 4? new pairs on my own bikes, plus some on others.
