I also had the letter, so booked in for 11th Feb in Cardiff. Also hoping for a dry day so I can hit the twisties on the way there and back.

Given that I have a 200 mile round trip I'm going to enquire if they will send me the bolt and I send them the old one back. They probably won't wash it but no harm in asking. If not it could be many months before mine gets done. It'd be far cheaper to buy a bolt and fit it myself.

No dice, at least not when I asked.

Serious?? threads stripped? What is that, an M8x1.25 or something?
Yes, something like that.. bolt was just too short so when I torqued it more than I should it pulled out first 3 threads..
And I did not apply much force tbh, just "wrist tight"
So the solution was to make longer bolt that went all the way and ignore first 3 missing turns and just use those 6-8 that are further in the mounting hole.
It holds now just fine..
