    2012 r1200gs

    Getting ready to install some Tourtech bar backs on my GS, took a look at the four bolts that hold down the top clamp, they appear to be "inverted" torq heads????? Can someone tell me what they are, and what size device I need to remove them? They are clearly two different sizes.

    Thanks

    You need external torx sockets like these...

    5/16 and 3/8 12 point sockets will work.
