Im guessing all the bolts for those case covers were the same length? On my GB racing covers, 3 of the bolts were the same length but 1 was 5mm longer. Didnt bother reading the instructions and didnt notice that 1 bolt was longer. Put 1 of the shorter bolts in the hole that was supposed to take the longer bolt and stripped the first turn of threads. Luckily, after realising my mistake, there were enough threads left for the longer bolt to grab.

There are a reason why there is a manual with GB Racings product ... follow them and you should have no issues :) (damn that yellow are ugly  :192:)

Never trust a man who wraps his bike with wood effect vinyl.

I really like the wood grain. 👍
Who I really wouldn't trust is a man who uses a ratchet or torque wrench and doesn't hold the head squarely with his other hand. Especially with an extension.
Most painful to watch. 😥
