2010 ST3 rear bobbin bolt size

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by Fitty, Jan 20, 2011.

  1. Looking at getting a stand for my '10 ST3 and I recall reading somewhere that the bolt size for the bobbins changed in '10 from 6mm to 8mm. Can anyone confirm that? Don't have the tools to do an inside measurement myself.

  2. The shop you buy the bits from should be able to tell you.

    If they can't, find a different shop.
  3. Getting made, not buying.
  4. I got my STR Dec 09 (it's the MY10 version - new orange tacho) and the rear bobbin size is still 6mm.

    Quick way to check is get a 6mm bolt and see if it fits (since I don't have paddock stand bobbins yet, I just use 2 bolts that I put in when I need to put the bike on a paddock stand)
