Because you're supposed to use different bolts. If you look at the stock ones from the Teryx, they don't go all the way through the bung and cage attachment point. In my mind, they're unsafe. I used them for one trip, and then ordered some bolts from Jagged X. The new ones go all the way through and are much stronger.They are called bungs and you will need four I got some for the best price I could find at side by side sports in escondido CA. Just ordered em on the net and they were about $130.00 or so with shipping. they are good fit but I dont know why they were not drilled the right size to accept the 14 MM bolt that is already on the teryx. If anyone can explain that post it up.
No, no bolt/nut combo. It is a socket head cap screw M12x45mmx1.25.Interesting, I have'nt looked before but are aftermarket cages being through bolted with a bolt and nut? and not using the right 14x1.5 metric bolt that threads right into the stock teryx cage mount, the stock cage bolts appear to be about 1/8" from flush with threaded mount. the bolts I am using for my new cage go through the bung and thread all the way through the stock mounting point which is about 1 inch thick, But these bolts would not fit thru the bung until I drilled em larger seems like things would be a little sloppy using a smaller bolt with a nut.
Could be done but you would have to cut em off and grind the old cage metal off, And even if, Say you chucked them up in a lathe to get them nice and round and uniform in size. the stock cage material is much thinner so it would take some reworking them to get them to fit the new cage material you would want to use. which should be at least 1.75 x.095 tube.ok new to the site but why couldnt you reuse the old ones? just a thought
