    Default G1 and G2 thread size? Fred H can you help?

    I need to know the thread size for the G1 and G2 bolts. I have a ground issue and need to tap the holes out clean. Can any one help? I need to make sure I have the correct tap size.

    Thanks

    Been a while since I have been in there. To tell you the truth, I am not sure. It might be a M5, but I would need to check. It may be listed in the manual somewhere. If I can dig it up I will post it.

    If you get in there just sanding/grinding the paint off the frame around the bolt hole and adding some silicone to prevent future corrosion should do the trick. Another good idea is to run a heavy wire or ground strap from G1 to G2.

    Thanks guy's. I got my top shelter off last night but haven't spent much time looking at getting the gas tank out. I might get time tonight to spend on it.

    To be as effective as possible, you need to run a tap in the holes and get every drop of used Loctite out. Don't reinstall Loctite when you put the new hardware in....add a star washer instead.

    I have installed car audio and competed in car audio competitions for years. I'd be a little cautious on adding any additional ground straps as there is a chance you can induce noise into the audio system. Its easy to do.
