Long Bolt for Dl650 hanguards

Just last week installed handguards on my Wee. Yesterday found a small ice patch resulting in a low speed drop. Obviously took out the stock turn signal and bent the hell out of the bar end, Givi engine guards saved everything else.

Research leads me to believe Suzuki does not sell the long bolt used in the kit only the short stock bolt.

Has anyone found a good aftermarket source for the bolt? I believe its a M6 x 140mm

2009 DL650 Orange, Very early start to 60K
2004 DL650 Blue (sold)
2004 GS500F (sold)

Normally, it can be straightened. If not, the Glee kit eliminates the in handlebar spacer and uses a shorter screw with only the rubber expander along with the nut containing it inside the handlebar. Try that.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I've straightened mine out several times.
You'd have to find a specialty metric bolt house for a replacement.

I believe I have the long one at home. If so, I can throw it in the mail for you.

long bolt

did you try one for a DL 1000, as it is longer for the hand guards, that the 650 does not come with stock.
