    It may be stronger than the center drilled breather bolts....?

    Idk, weird that they use it in that kit since The 117 doesn't breath through the bolts

    Most likely a "generic" kit.

    Anyone know of a good source for bolts? Zero local places carry a 1/4-20x3" chrome button head bolt. Search online and can only find a few sites but it's like $4 for the bolt and $10 for shipping and will probably take awhile to get here.

    My dm spike kit I had 2 bolts that go into the head the had a whole in them for the little chrome metal filters can be used instead of the small filter between the tanks , but they don't look like mine at all , I would guess that the just change the style of getting air in there

    As long as u put a small air filter between the tanks u just use regular chrome bolts, but u need 1 filter or the other. Good luck

    It's for venting if u don't put the small filter between the tanks but the length u will need because when u put the bracket onto the carb the left and right bracket holes that line up to the heads. It's going to need washers behind the bracket to the head bolts. DM's spike is a nice piece I have a pit bull and I needed washers unless the newer ones have small spacers but I doubt it

    Bro that things not moving after u put the small 3 screws into the carb u will see the space need for washers don't tighten the 3 bolts like they are staying in there because u will be taking the right back out

    Not the same 117 between 04 and 05 even, I suppose there might be a few late model 04's possibly but not likely.

    Difference is S&S Super Sidewinder vs the S&S Super Sidewinder Plus. (SSW+). The only difference between these engines entirely is the breathing system. Considering the engine has been around since the 80's can't expect much!
