2009 1100S Breather hose cover bolts

Greetings!

I recently took my gas tank off. At one point, I removed the breather hose cover to loosen the hoses for removing my tank. Now I forgot which bolts go where to re attach the breather hose cover. I've attached a pic to illustrate which 3 bolts.

The top bolt and bottom bolt are the only two that really needed to be removed but I also removed the middle one without knowing. Sadly, all three bolts are different sizes and I'm not sure which one goes where.

Can anyone help? I've tried looking at service manuals but they only provide part numbers not lengths.

Bolts in question

I've attached a picture of the three bolts.

I think the order is

bottom - longest bolt

middle - shortest

top - medium

Anyone care to grab an allen wrench and help a guy out?

Honestly just putting them in finger tight should tell you where they go. If it bottoms out at the lightest touch, it's too long. Don't tighten down any of them until you figure out where they actually go. It's not a difficult task.

Oddly enough they all fit as far as I can get 'em with finger tightening.

Anyone willing to take theirs out to help me?

Yeah it's definitely drawing 11 p.30 but it doesn't discriminate bolt size.

I'm so screwed...

What I need is for a kind sole to take theirs out and direct me. I know it's asking a lot. Trust me, I feel stupid enough.

On my '11 796 both the top and the bottom M4 bolts are the SAME length. The middle M5 bolt is much longer than the other two. Not sure how you got 3 different sizes there...

Wow, super greatful man, thanks! Odd about my bolts. The two are close but one is definitely longer. I gotta stop using aluminum pots, early alzheimers...
