Torx head bolts on T7 panels

A close look at the Tenere 700 photos at EICMA shows torx head bolts used on all the cover panels. I have no idea why Yamaha would do that but I hope they are allen head bolts by the time we get them delivered to dealers.

I actually like Torx heads better, they dont strip out as easy as phillips heads or nut heads. Todays soft ass metal screws and screw heads strip out so damn easy, I like the Torx heads and have torx drivers. 

 

But with that said, they probably did it so more people take their bikes to the dealers.

I worry about torx head bolts. The fit is never tight like allen head bolts. And it doesn't make sense to have both on the one bike because then you need to carry two sets of tools.

I also like Torx. The bits are always a perfect fit, and I have never stripped a Torx head.

My torx don't fit like that. Maybe I need to buy better quality tools... :classic_sad:
