Help with OEM Frame Sliders for 2006 Suzuki GSX-R 600!

I bought the OEM black frame sliders from the Suzuki dealer and I'm trying to install them. So far, I started only with the right fairing and the mounting bolt seems too short for it to be bolten on, especially with the included washer. The only way it seems to tighten is without the washer but it only screws in a little bit. If the bike happens to go down, it seems that the bolt will break since it only screws in about a 1/4 of an inch of the thread in. Did anyone else experience this with the OEM frame sliders for an 06 gsx-r 600? I thought the package came with the wrong bolt but I measured the right-side bolt to be 70mm, which is what the instructions says it should be. Did anyone else experience this with the OEM frame sliders for an 06 gsx-r 600? Any pictures with them installed?

That's pretty weak. Both bolts are the same size?

Sup guys, I fixed the issue by going to the local hardware store and getting a longer bolt. It worked perfect luckily. Thanks for your feedback! Will post pics once I'm done with the left fairing (gotta drill a hole).

Are you confident in your drilling skills?

I would say I'm pretty confident. I've read what others have said when drilling into their fairings (bi-metal hole saw, masking tape, etc). Anything else you would suggest DLITALIEN?

I used a dremel on my '04 R6 when I had it. I just found the center of the bolt and went from there. I traced around the slider once I got it centered on the bolt (with my eye). Didn't come out too bad. Use masking tape on your fairing just in case the paint wants to chip away.

Get a flamica (countertop) drill bit and drill from the outside of the fairings once you drill out the center pilot hole!

The drill bit I suggest should also help with less shreadding of your plastics!
