Fork guard bolt swap


Recommended Posts

This is an easy bolt swap idea that came from watching a Camel install video.  (I believe Cory had done this in his video but the video wasn't about this subject)  I haven't seen any info on this site about this so I thought I'd post it here.


This is a good alternative to the plastic screws if you don't want to use them.  This swaps the vulnerable hex head bolt with the smooth rounded head bolt.  They are the same thread, the rounded allen head bolt is slightly longer but still fits the fork even without the Camel guard shown.  The hex head bolt is then shorter, but still protrudes from the back of the nut it it's new location. PLUS... they match better this way!


Exchanging this vulnerable bolt-



For this smooth rounded allen head bolt (top)-



This being the result-
