In Board / In Line suspension


Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

My 7 has an inline /inboard front suspension, I believe an aftermarket version to resemble the CSR. 

Both of the bolts have sheared off inside the linkage of the dampers. ( gold aluminum joint )

Any idea who makes these kits and where I can aim a question on what bolts to replace as I don't believe any bolts are metric. 

2005 SV Series 5 

Many thanks

It's a known problem, it's important to use longer bolts and cut off part of the thread so that the suspension loads are carried by the stronger shank part of the bolt.  I have these notes but I've never been 100% sure whether they are inch or mm

As SM25T says, Gary May, the designer of the suspension, is now working at Boss Racing
