Need help finding Engine bolts

I have a 2014 that I bought used that came with the Mo-tech frame sliders. I foolishly decided that I could slide some large nuts behind the slider, that would act as spacers and kick the sliders out some and they could then double as highway pegs.....(I know I'm a moron)........ anyway, it was working but I had unfortunate driveway tip overs on both sides. Since the slider bolts were essentially shimmed out, they bent during the tip overs probably due to increased leverage coupled with them not fully threaded due to my "nut spacers"........I cannot tighten them up so I took them off. I have since been told those bolts MUST be installed as they are part of the engine mounts. I don't even know if the bent bolts are stock, or if they were part of the Mo-tech system. I have been on various sites trying to identify the bolts I need, but they all seem to use the same exploded parts diagram software that I've never been able to read properly.


Help!!!!!!!!!



ps. please feel free to comment on my stupidity,

If you mean SW-Motech, the're in Portland, Or. Give them a call.

smiles miles=bike.
It's simple math.

Any nut, screw and bolt specialty store should have replacements.

If they are engine mount bolts, you want to be aware of the bolt grade.

Okay, that was stupid!! :-)




Just guessing about which bolts are missing, but most likely you want parts #13 and #14 from this drawing.

Need help finding Engine bolts

Greg,

Teach a man to fiche:

Find the Yamaha Part Number for those bolts:

https://www.stadiumyamaha.com/oempar...fjr13aer-parts

Decode the Yamaha Part Number to find the diameter and length of the bolt:

https://www.yamahastarbolt.com/techn...-part-numbers/

Plan A:
Find good local bolt sources with Anywho:

https://www.fjrowners.com/forums/1199329-post18.html

These stores can usually match your hardware (size & thread) and should have various lengths on hand. Once you know what you need, call around for availability.

Plan B:
Order the bolts from a dealer or Amazon, by Part Number.

HTH.
.

Cheers,

Thanks but that's not the right drawing.

I've never been able to navigate those drawings, especially as complicated as the engine one. I'm sorry I'm so ignorant and I appreciate your trying to help.

The engine bolts are not very common due to their fine threads. I believe this is the spec: 12mm-1.25 8.8 HEX BOLT. Check the length and you can get them at www.Allensfasteners.com

That would work if I knew if the bolts I have are stock or came with the frame sliders (SW-Motech).


Thanks for the reply!
