Default Engine mounting bracket bolts

Here's a little tip to other BMW Sportster builders.

The Marlin supplied engine mounting brackets are much thinner than the orginal BMW alloy ones, so you need to use shorter bolts.

I thought I'd use the originals which, as I tightened them up, hit the bottom of the tapped hole in the engine block.

I foolishly snapped one off in the block today !

Now i'll have to spend time extracting it before I move on!

best regards to other builders,

Good tip!
