Just wondering if anyone else has encountered this - I got a pair of pinch bolts for my lower yokes, (the yokes appear to be threaded the whole way through, from the front to back). The bolt screws in OK, until the unthreaded section of the bolt hits the threads and it won't turn any further.

Should I be using set screws which are completely threaded, although it seems to me that won't pinch up the clamps properly, or should only part of the yoke be threaded? It looks like something isn't right, just wondering if it's the bolts or yoke at fault, unfortunately I don't have the original bolts for reference.
