GIVI Crash bars - better bolts

Hi guys,

just a head's up/warning to those of you who might install GIVI crash bars... the bolts are quite fragile. There's a great (detailed) post here ( which talks about how he resolved his broken bolt problem... (it helped me a great deal)..

FYI - I found a place here in Calgary (Triad Fasteners) that carries 12.9 M8x35 Socket head cap screws... so they're better tensile strength than the 8.8 which are provided by GIVI.

Hope this helps someone else...
