Not sure freddie, I remember reading when they first came out there was a small notch you need to cut out on the underside (hidden) of the fairing.... maybe somebody's got the instructions.....

Ok

I see know I am missing a few spacers and unique insert style aluminum washers. Anyone know if the stock bolts will fit or do I also need longer frame bolts?

Did you look at the instructions? You can see size and quantity of provided hardware. I'd assume stock bolts are too short since the provide new/longer ones. (4 m12x70)

The M12's are to replace the original engine mount bolts, are a fine thread... use anti-seize on these as they tend to corrode, and reduce torque 30%. You can go longer if you like (80mm), there's room in behind for extra thread...

Also, it helps if you loosen up the pinch bolt that is around the spacer on the right side. You need a short allen bit and a wrench to turn it with since there is not much clearance with the tupperware on.

The pinch bolt is set at factory to adjust that sleeve to any variation in the width of engine vs. frame. Shouldn't have to loosen it unless you're putting in a new engine..... however, won't hurt.

Makes it easier not to strip the right side bolt by letting the spacer spin

Dealer doesnt sell spacers or bolts for OEM sliders. Must buy whole kit. Went to hardware store and bought M12 70m 1.25 fine thread. Add spacers and all good.

Thank you
