    Just wondering if anyone has replaced their four Torx bolts on their top and bottom yokes with Alan Key bolts.
    I noticed the four torx bolts taper down plus they have a groove cut out on them,the Alan key bolts i replaced them with are just straight thread with no taper or grooves.
    The Alan key bolts seem to be tight but they dont seem have closed the gap on the yokes as good,maybe im just being paranoid :))).
    Have put tape round sleeves to check that theres no movement.
    Has anyone else fitted normal Alan Key bolts what your finding.
    Cheers

    If you use allen bolts over the taper torx, either check the depth of the blind hole or make sure the allens are only the length of the full body of the torx.

    Remote possibility the allen is bottoming out in the blind hole. The blind hole bottom may also be tapered. I never checked.
