I've heard of people simply using washers in this particular predicament. but yeah see what "factory solutions" are available.

My Luk solid single mass kit had flywheel bolts that were about 1/4" shorter than the stock flywheel bolts. I did try to re-use one of the stock DMF bolts just to see if it would fit and it would not... too long. I reused the big circular "washer" from the dual mass setup that had the 10 holes for the flywheel bolts... that way the bolt heads weren't directly contacting the flywheel.
