    Farthing Racing Sponson issue

    I have a set of Farthing Racing sponsons that I just installed on my 2013 VXR. My problem is that not all of the holes line up. The middle 3 were fine. The front holes were really close, so I just ground 1/16" or so off of the head of the bolt and it fit. The rear most hole is not close enough for that. So considering the main fin of the sponson is only held on by 3 very small bolts, am I safe with running the main portion on only 4 bolts?

    I wouldn't. Did you happen to look and see if they were even in height as well? I wanna say mine seemed lower

    I am pretty confident it would have been fine the way it was, but I was very confident that I could modify it. So now all the bolts go in just fine.
