Pulled the fender, most bolts were 8mm and a couple of 10mm's, the last of 2 down below seemed like an 8mm but was actually a 5/16", wierd. Fenders in excellent condition, going to paint it this winter for a spring install.

You realize that a 5/16" is .3125", and 8mm is .3149, right? Not enough difference to really matter.

Oh I know its close but the 8mm was not going to get it out as it kept spinning without coming out at all after many tries. was going to cut the bolt but thought to try some imperial sockets and wala, the 5/16 pulled it out easily.
