Suzuki OEM Knuckle Guard bolt bent :(

The bolt that tightens the bar weight on my '12 DL650 with OEM Knuckle Guards is bent. I ordered the standard bolts not knowing the Knuckle Guard bolt was shorter. It seems that you can not just order the bar end weight bolt, but have to order the entire set. Might anyone have an extra bolt or two laying around that I could beg for?

Thanks!
Scott

Hey Scott I have what you need, I kind of hate to part with it "I do run aftermarket guards", but don't see myself ever putting them back on. Shoot me a PM with your info, I am willing to send you the complete set of bar ends over just the screw......might come in handy for you.

Is this like a Honda random act of Kindness?

Not sure what the Honda reference is, but yeah I just thought I would pass on some kindness.

Nice of Big B.

The OP should consider straightening the bolt, heat it first. Nice to have a spare. They take a lot before actually snapping.

They can bend from crashes. Put it on an anvil or similar and it's easy to get straight again. If it happens again.
