help with GIVI skid plate. Remove this engine case bolt?!!!
I have a 2104 and purchased a GIVI skid plate and the directions are awful. From what I can tell, the directions want me to remove the lower main engine case bolt (the one that clamps the case together), put brackets at both openings, then run a new bolt through the case secured with a lock washer and nut.
Is this correct? (See pictures) I'm not too happy about removing the main case bolt that holds it together for fear of causing a leak. Anyone know for sure if I need to remove this bolt and replace it with the provided bolt? I wanted confirmation before removing that very important bolt.
When I ordered it is stated it was good for a 2014, but the top of the directions say 2011-2012. I figure the motors are the same so it should work on my 2014.
