    just quick, are the 45mm bolts that come with the boosters safe on frames? they only go in about 7 or 8 mm into the mounts. should i be worried and get 50mm bolts, or are the 45mm ones fine? topic can be closed after the answer comes

    i wouldnt worry about it. 7-8mm contact depth is pelnty. it also comes down to the frame too. my px mod could have had five feet of thread contact and the bolts still would have ripped out and killed me. you should be fine with what comes with the booster. if you want some more peace of mind grab some longer bolts and go as deep as your frame will allow.

    I'd go long. Some bolts that came stock with my Tryall booster only gave like 7mm of contact and they stripped out fast.

    ok 50mm it is then. would really suck to strip out my frame.
    thanks.
