    I don't understand. What do the Yosh springs anchor to? Don't you still need bolts? Can't you use a stud and nut anyplace you use a bolt? Please explain because I too have a Yosh full system but I have no clue how it instalss.
    It's about control skill; this is a motorized dance for joy and not Russian roulette.

    The nuts have a 2.5mm diameter hole drilled side-to-side through them that the spring slips through - otherwise, they are the same as the OEM bolts ... You could just drill a hole through the stud but there's no way to be sure which way it'd end up facing ...

    Today's Update
    I came inside covered in muck and the wife asked what I'd been doing.
    When I replied that I had, in fact, been working on the bike she responded "Really? But I couldn't hear you swearing." so things are still going well!

    Bought some new exhaust bolts - M8x25 from the DIO store, drilled the holes myself (see above) and only buggered one up and my 2mm drill bit - dunno why - but I got a pack of 5 bolts so I got 2 perfect ones out of the 3 I attempted
    SOAKED the bolts in Loctite anti-sieze, slotted it all back together ... test fitted the sensor - almost bloody perfect position!
    Started the bike - no leaks!

    Now I just gotta wire it all in!

    You can still use studs, just make 2 egg shaped washers and drill the spring holes in them

    Because that's what have helped me I guess. They have much less probability to get stuck.
    Iron and aluminium is not a good combo.

    I use stainless bolts aswell with a liberal coating of copper slip, but to be honest once you have got the stock bolts out it's very rare for replacements to seize unless they were fitted dry again and done another 20k miles all year round.

    Great thread Kami...

    You actually made me laugh.

    1) for being so jinxy as to dare mention ANYTHING is going well.
    2) for wife no hearing your swearing

    It appears that I apparently don't enjoy anything anymore... I sweat and curse while doing jobs in garage, car &/or house and I'm a nightmare to live with "apparently" - being a right old grumpy barsteward.

    So it is with GREAT delight that you are enjoying yoruself and it brought a smile to my face ... oohhh eerrr

    that'll be may face cracking and sliding off then.
