Extra Bolts

Hello to all. I just picked up my new 2014 Deluxe, and in the right side bag was a plastic baggy that had six bolts in it. 4 that are about an 1 1/2 long and two that are a 1/2 inch long. No one at the dealer knows what they are for. So if anyone here can shed some light I would appreciate it.

Thanks
Ben

As a guess... If the bike has any accessories mounted on it, the bolts may be originals that came out when longer bolts were used to mount the accessories. Accessories sometimes come with two or three sets of hardware so they can fit multiple bikes, too.

Here is a picture. I agree that they might be from shipping, and they were removed to put something else on.

nice looking bolts as Charon said probably originals not used with acessories.

Those bolts look pretty decorative to be for packaging. Similar bolts are found on the chrome valve covers, the black plastic cover near the rear exhaust, hard bag bolts, belt guard, rear tail lights, and side cover above the kickstand.
