Near the upper shock mounts are two unused threaded holes.
My dealer's initial impression is they are alternative shock mounts for lowering the bike. That would work except the left side is offset inboard quite a bit - so much so that the shock would interfere with the belt drive without a hefty spacer.
I think they are simply leftover from the original Bolt frame and would appear to have once held a fender strut bolt per side.

Anybody got some clever ideas for putting them to use?

....I never thought about that. That could definitely work out pefectly. I really don't like the oem ones lol

Can't really imagine the turn signals relocated to where the mounting points are but the stock ones could be exchanged for a smaller set.

Not too sure, I don't think they'll look that bad at all. Guess we won't really know for sure until we see someone do it... *hint hint*

If you position it right I can imagine that being good enough but the positioning seems sort of weird to me. Usually when it comes to aftermarket/custom turn signals I like to mount them closer to the seat, flush with the underside of the seat if possible.

Don't look at me. I glued my fingers together and to the left handgrip on my SCR last night while installing the bar end weights.
I'm going to quit while I'm ahead. I think.
:laugh:

Thailand got the SCR950 and we all know how much those guys like to customize bikes, chances are we'll see some cool things coming from that end.


This is what one of them did to a Ducati Scrambler interestingly enough:

It's really not that bad, some may even call it cool. But that headlight cover is just so out of place and does nothing for aerodynamics.

It doesn't seem like aerodynamics is really their primary concern. More so just for styling and being different. Unique. It's nice to see people doing crazy things to them, just nit-pick certain aspects and put together your own ideal bike ! :grin2:

I know what the holes on the shock mounts are for... but what are the threaded holes under the sidecovers for?

So has anyone tried using the holes for turn signals yet or not? I'm curious.


I would love to ditch the tail/signals/plate holder setup, that this is big and gaudy.

There's a bag mount/luggage rack that fits there. I've seen a few with lights, but I think it's more common to mount signal lights through the holes in the metal plate just under the seat, above and behind the plastic number plates. Oh, and welcome to the forum!

Confirmed, saddlebag bracket mounts, as per Yamaha accessory website (see pic)
Does anyone know the bolt size and thread count? I'd like to fashion my own bracket and luggage, but I need to know what bolt to use to attach it here. TIA!
