Did you get the kit and lose a fastener or what?

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 put the oem suzuki handguards on the other day, and I just checked the install. Instructions to see if the bolt sizes were listed, unfortunately not. The part # on the oem guards is 57300-27820-291. Perhaps more bolt info is available if you use that number. If they'd have just listed the bolt sizes on the install sheet...oh well. Good luck.

The hardware is odd sized and shouldered. Buy the kit and use what you have as spares for when you scrape one.

Take it to a hardware store and try to match it.

Guess I should have been wearing pants...

57300-27821-291 is the new part number. The picture is for a DL1000 so is a little different. 5 and 11 are representative of the hardware. They are shouldered, with tall hex heads and the heads are tapped to receive screws. You won't find those at a hardware store.
