    2017 Gp1800 Throttle body mount issue

    Hi all, I'm having an issue while installing the long bolts that are used to mount the throttle body to the new mount. They seem to be about 1/4 of an inch too long. These are the bolts that came with the kit. I've made sure that all 4 are the same length. I've been staring at it for about an hour now and am stumped. The only solution I see is to buy shorter bolts, but that would defeat the purpose of them being included in the kit.I'm pretty mechanically inclined, just did a rear exit exhaust, prop, intake grate, ride plate, etc without issue. Has anyone else had this issue? Hopefully I'm just dumb, completely missing something, and you guys can guide me in the right direction. Thanks in advance.Click image for larger version.

    Yep. Is that the Worx? Same here when I got mine. Was disappointed for sure. But I easily cut them down.

    It's the riva, the solution is to cut them down or buy the proper bolts. I just wanted to be sure that I wasnt doing something incorrectly!

    I just put a rive one on and the bolts were good to go.

    Or simply add 3 more washers per bolt. Cheaper than buying new bolts or cutting the bolt too short. No one will see it! Done.
