Spacer's needed for this mod to take place of shoulder bolts.

FWIW I purchased 2 M8-1.25 x 40mm stainless set screws and 2 M8 flanged nuts today for $5. I used the existing spacers instead of stacked jam nuts so the plate is easier to remove if necessary. I used hi-temp anti seize in the threaded bores to insure the studs would not suffer from dissimilar metal corrosion and get seized up, JIC they needed to be removed. Using the set screws makes it an easy install or removal since you can use a allen wrench. Easy 5 minute project before installing my new TT crash bars.

OK, i did this mod on mine. Thanks to all you guys.

I also did the stud mod for the sump guard (which already have helicoils) but as i used two nuts jammed on the stud, the sump guard doesn't go up all the way. Now i am realising that i shouldn't have done this as there in no need for the jammed nuts.

I would not want that gap. Your battery compartment will get trashed with mud and dirt. It's designed to seal up tight. Can't you just have hte stud only and use the nut to tighten it up? Or does the stud nut fit through the rubber washer and it tightens up? Can't really tell from the pic if that is where it will be or if you just have it down to show the stud nut.

I don't want that gap either . I'll have a truck load of sand within an hour of riding...

I have realised that the stud nuts don't need to be there, ie., i will now remove the stud nuts and install the stud only and use the nut to tighten up the sump guard. No the nut doesn't go thru the rubber grommet.

thx

Just put some loctite on them and lose the doubled up nuts. End of problem. Looks good though.

Dont the stock bolts have a shoulder on them to prevent you from over torqueing the plate and risk cracking the bottom cover?

The stock sumpguard bolts have a shoulder to avoid squashing the rubber bush. You could make up a tube to put over the stud to do the same job.

Set screws are the way to go You can even use the existing spacers for a clean install
Just try and get stainless steel

btw, the bottom nut is just for holding the screw up for photo


Great mod!

Can I suggest to anyone thinking of this mod to do it when you get the crashbars and mount them. I've had mine on for a few months. In the meantime I've dropped the bike a few times in fun & games on the crashbars and it is just about impossible to get the bolts back in the holes.
So I'm now doing the stud mod. It would have been easier at the beginning before things became .... used.

I found a metal tube/spacer that fits fairly snugly in the rubber bushing. Stays put when I remove the nuts.

I'm about to undertake this mod (or 'Fix' in my case!)- and I found these online after a shit ton of digging. Thought I'd share-

For the bolt section i found a lifter stud that was the right dimensions, permanent lock-tight, shimmed to size and used nylock nuts. The advantage of this is that there is no bottom nut, just a permanent stud and spacer that can be replaced.
