Angry '09 ER-6n Woodcraft frameslider install problem

Has anyone managed to successfully install the left side of the Woodcraft frame sliders on an 09 ER-6n? Can you share how you did it.

The left side came with an 8mm bolt and washer, but according to the spot to install it has a two welded bits around it, which narrow the diameter so the slider base doesn't fit.

Any help is appreciated.

I realise I will need to cut the shroud if I use the woodcrafts or get the ones shown in the same link.

Any instructions on how to properly install the Woodcraft Frame Sliders on a 09 would be greatly appreciated - am about to do the install on sunday.
Didn't know there would be any problems (apart from frame cutting which is a PITA).

The frame sliders are 2" in diameter but use a 2 1/4" hole saw or you will spend 30minutes dremmeling your fairings if you aren't exactly precise (my lesson learned). Also, make sure you lay your fairing on a blanket or something else soft while you are working. I had mine on a cardboard box which I thought was fine but when I pulled it back up it had a huge streak of tiny scratches in the clearcoat from where it was rubbing on the cardboard. Maybe I'm just retarded and these tips are obvious but I thought I'd share them anyway lest you repeat my mistakes.

I appreciate alle the help, brother.
I think it's better to listen to something twice than misheard it once.

Do you have any pictures of your install? They would help a lot for sure cause I have never installed sliders on a faired bike before..
Cheers
