    Long cylinder cover bolts

    When I picked up my CX500, it came with a spare cylinder cover, as the one on it was cracked. I'm not at assembly and I'm noticing the 2 cylinder cover bolts on that side don't fit. Well, they fit, but they are longer, so they don't secure. I know which ones I need to buy to replace them, but what I'm wondering is what bike or part would these longer ones belong to? I can measure them when I get home if anyone is interested.

    They could be for a 650 but without dimensions I can't tell you.

    Here's a picture. Shorter ones for my CX500. Threaded part seems to be longer on mine as well. Pretty sure the previous owner just picked them up and they were wrong, but he threaded them in to keep the cover on.
