To be clear, mine was for an 1100 V-Star.
On the light bar, the bolt on the bucket goes through the hole in the lighbar end, and a threaded sleeve (fitting for a box wrench on the top and cylindrical on the "bottom" for the turn signals) is used to fix the buckets and sleeves to the lightbar. The turn signals then go over the sleeves.
I drilled out the threads on the threaded (Metric) sleeve so the non-metric bolt would now pass through. I also shortened the sleeve by about 1/2 an inch. I then ran a proper (non-metric) nut down the threads and tightened down the sleeve. The nut outer diameter must be less than the sleeve outer diameter, but larger than the sleeve inner diameter. You might find a smaller nut with a washer (which you can slot for wires) might work better.
Or, if you can find a smaller nut and reach down into the sleeve to tighten, that would be best of all to make a lot of room to run the wires out of the slots. Any way you add the nut, the nut has to be very tight, or your lights will turn slightly just do to the vibration of the bike.
