armrest help

I purchased a used set of armrests and it did not come with all the mounting hardware
I got all the clips but am missing some of the bolts (shown in item 2) what I am missing is item 6 and 8
from what I can tell I have item 5 and 7 and all the clips. rather than buying the complete kit, I was wondering if anyone has the dimensions for these bolts (I am assuming they are standard metric hardware) thanks

I don't have an answer for you but just wondering where you found the used armrests?
I ended up just ordering these from the dealer but I had been looking for a used set for some time.

I just sold a set on FB, Posted here but they did not sell.

08 07 12 9 904 819 TORX-BOLT WITH WASHER - M6X16 - need 2

I'd just go down to the big box store with the spring clip/nut and grab one from the bin.

I missed them too. I just bought a brand new set, cost me $1350 Cdn and that was with 10% off.


Honestly, I could never imagine spending this much on a set of armrests but there was no other option. If I ever sell the bike, I think I will sell them separately.



Going to be installing next week. Looks straight forward except for cutting out the side panels but should be no big deal.
