I used Permatex black silicon, should do the job.
Interestingly my stock grate had nothing!

i use the standard black for that, it works just fine, however i use the right stuff for the ride plate and OPAS blockoffs..
yes you can purchase them at all those places

Im guessing is just a little around the bolts that wil spread as you torque, how much torque should i put, untill tight and a little more or just regular hand tight?

Completed the job in about 20-30 minutes, was surprise how easily the bolts came out, the single bolt at one end was kind of loose, and the other three came as easily. This makes me thing i should inspect it more often, my machine have only 27 hrs and they where loose allrady,
How often owners check these ?
I apply a littke of blue locktight in order to secure them properly. Will check all ther bolts tomorrow to be sure
