Fender Bolt Tool

Hi there. I recently bought a Detachables luggage rack and realized when I went to install it that I don't have the proper tool to remove the four fender bolts. They appear to be a large T45/T50 size bolt. I was wondering if anyone can verify the correct bit so I can order one online.

Thanks in advance

Mine had Allen Heads. 6mm If I remember correctly.

My '16 750 had a T45 Torx head bolt. I was at Home Depot and just started looking for the cheapest set that included that size. The ones I have fit a 3/8" ratchet drive. Harbor Freight and probably any other hardware store/department that carries socket sets will have similar sets.

The Shock bolts on my 15 are Torx Plus 40 or 45. The Fender bolts were Allen. Maybe a changeover??

Yea, I'm pretty sure that the fender bolts on the 2015 XG's were all Allen screws and then they changed to Torx in 2016.

Definitely should have mentioned it's a 2016. I picked up a set of Torx up to T60. Once the rain clears I'm gonna get outside and get this thing figured out. I'll report back on the size.

It's a Torx T-50 on the 2016 XG's. I found that in an older thread about mounting the luggage rack docking kit.

Pretty sure it is a Torx T-45 on the 2016 XG I own. I pulled out the old bolt and checked it, but something was going on so that I couldn't post the last week or so.

With final exams going on I couldn't find time to get back to this until today. After buying a full set of bits and checking I can confirm the 2016 model has T50 heads on the four fender bolts. Thanks to everyone who chimed in.

Could be a Torx Plus. The Shock Bolts on mine are.
