    M8 x 1.25 x 62 but any M8x1.25 will suffice as long as the bolt is long enough u should be fine

    Longest ones I could get are 60, they also look pretty thick so not sure if they will fit into my remus centre section, if not then hopefully there should be enough room to enlarge the hole slightly.

    Damn cybox exhaust is doing my head in, putting my irmscher one back on.

    M8 x 1.25 is the most common size thread across the entire model so it should fit - its the correct size as standard and the correct size that ive used on the remus and other pipework before so unless youve had some butchery in the past and a new flange fitted then no reason why it wont fit!

    unless youve got a different size bolt!!

    as with most tapped holes i always clean the threads out with a tap prior to fitting new bolts - just to be on safe side

    Will have a look in the morning when I get a chance.

    I wasn't aware that the remus centre section had a tapped flange, I thought it was just 2 holes? Maybe this is where I am going wrong, I originally had the centre section and backbox fitted by an exhaust place and they used nuts and bolts, they didn't change the flange as I watched them, unless they didn't realize it was tapped and put a smaller bolt through the tapped hole.

    Not sure if the bolts are m8 or not, I asked for M8 and he brought out a box with M8 on it and gave me 2 bolts and nuts from it so not too sure.

    Thanks again.
