The four 14 mm Fender/back end bolts...
If you own an SVTC, there are 2 black headed 14 mm bolts that can be seen snug to the fender side, if you open up your tops of the side cases. One of my bolts on the right hand side of the bike, and the forward one, had come loose, and was almost out far enough, for the head of the bolt to touch the inside face of the right side bag lift cover.
The Eluder does NOT have the two bolts mentioned, on either side of the fender...only the SVTC, or standard SV.
Now, the funny thing is...that I could not even turn it out or in, with my fingers, or when they were in a glove, but yet, seemingly, the bolt had turned itself out to the point that the 14 mm head, was just going to contact (!!!!!!!!) the inside lip of the saddle bag cover. I grabbed a 14 mm socket and wrenched it back snug to the fender, and then did a 14 mm torque rating (24 foot pounds) on all four bolts. On my left side, the aft bolt was loose enough, that I could easily turn it with no amount of torque to break a good tightness.
So..folks,...check those four bolts right away...before your next ride. If any of them back out, as you ride, they will eventually come in contact with the inside lip of your saddle bag covers...and start to dig in, through bike movement, and cause blemish damage, let alone that whatever components are held together (mating surfaces) by those bolts, of course, will not be secured.
I'm going to keep an eye on those four bolts...two on each side of the fenders...and make sure they stay properly torqued, at least once a month during the riding season!!!
Post Edit: I'd be curious to want to know, if anybody else after reading this post...sees that any one of those four bolts were loose, or even backing out, on their own SVTC. If so...please post that info on this thread,...so we can see that this will require the attention of all owners, and after the fact, periodically....
Just a FYI!
