Yes

Do you think this switch plate is bolted during transit?

Loutre, you fail. Fluent, n00b, question for the dumb question thread, easily searched, no location. In the other thread you picked on a struggling Croatian to gain my respect. I remained silent.

I may be your Hero but you still are learning.

That's a dealer prep issue, right? I just removed the tank panel from my 700 this weekend to install a Gerbing's heated gear harness and had to remove both of those bolts to get the panel off. I assume with the missing ones that they either vibrated out or someone removed them, as you suggest, and forgot to put them back.

Incidentally, mine were both present and were both reinstalled. :)
