    This is the bolt holes on the intake grate, yes you should fill them.
    On a Yamaha you don't want to fill in the holes on the ride plate

    One stick is all that's needed. Putting small rope around the bolt head will reduce the amount of JB Weld that you need.

    Jerry, what about the front bolts on the grate? Should they be sealed as well?

    I would fill them, including the ride plate. You want the bottom smooth as can be.

    I was thinking about using grease on the bolt head. How did you come up with the rope idea? Have you tried anything besides rope?

    Rope, chewing gum wrapper, paper, etc... anything to take up a little area around the bolt head to decrease the amount of JB weld you need to use.

    I am thinking a fat o-ring of the right size would work rather well.

    I was also thinking about stuffing plumbers putty all around the bolt head. It looks like there is enough surface area above the bolt head for the JB Weld to hold on to.
