I really struggled in weather i should send out a SOS help to the board, but I did something rather stupid!
I bought a 2009 BMW R12RT and took it apart to clean (the Tupperware) the frame, I removed the trunk bracket/frame, the left side of the foot peg frame. Got everything nice and clean (hate a dirty bike), but I have a stainless steel bolt that for the life of me I have no clue where it goes or where it came from. The size is 8 X 1.25 thread X 30 mm long. It's stainless and it's none magnetic. The only thing I can remember is that when it was installed at the factory, grey anti seize was applied to the threads. You can see some of the anti seize at the start of the thread.
Is there some one out there who is more familiar to where this bolt goes, I would be grateful to you in pointing me as to where it goes. Guess I'll have to wear the letter L on my forehead for a day!
