fifth transmission bolt----cut off?

I have an rc component softail frame with a 1 1/4 inch offset on the trans. The offset plate has four holes that line up with the four bolts on the trans, but there is one more bolt that bottoms out on the right side shock. Does this need to be cut off? I can't see any other alternative but thought I would ask the pro's before cuttin'.

I cut mine off ,but I also have another bracket that goes from two of the lower tranny cover cap screws to a welded on tab on the frame, whatever you do don't try to unscrew or pull this stud use a cut off wheel.

Would that be because it's threaded all the way through and if you take it out the tranny fluid will drain out? I love discovery learning. That's what mine did.

I cut my mounting tab off the frame when I shifted my tranny to the left, but did reinforce the tranny to the motor w/ a Carlini torque arm to keep it from having any flex w/out the 5th mounting bolt.

That stud does go all the way through. I made a mount similar to the baker mount and bolted it to the frame.

On one bike I cut it off completely (mount, stud the whole thing)and on the other I used a bolt (short one) and ran it up into the trans and on the third one I installed the nuts and cut the remaining threads off.

Hey dair to all yous clubchopper folks, dair be some good suggestions here from all yous smart folks, but de main ting you's gots to keep in mind. Yes de 5th mount stud is a "through" hole, and will leak if removed. You do need to re inforce the back of the transmission, you can re locate the 5th mount, possible change some of the hardware out, or like Da Gypsy man said sometimes de shocks can be part of de issue. Always does whats best fer ya, but don't cut any corners when it comes to being smart and being safe!............



...........nows while yous be ponderin dat, I'll be gittin ready fer de next round of as de bong turns!

Ditto. For BBC bikes they say LSD cut off bolt and use bracket. RSD, use the 5th bolt

Maybeeeeeeee

Thanks for all of the ideas. Maybe I could weld a bracket onto the offset trans plate. If it does not clear the shocks----maybe a smaller pair of shocks would work.

Come on Gypsee,
That is just Photoshop. You drew in all the welds and metalworking stuff. You can't fool us.
