  • Replacement Bolts

    One of the previous owners thought it'd be fun to outfit the bike with a lot of blue colored bolts. No problem there except he failed to replace them all. So now I have a couple bolts that are all rusty. Any chance these will fit?

    I don't need the complete set, just some for replacement. Do the bolt sizes change much? Thanks

    Re: Replacement Bolts

    I don't know if they will. Just get some for your bike. Check out bikefairingbolts on ebay. They have every color. You can get complete sets or just bolts. Note the heads are smaller and come with inserts. They are powder coated and instructions say to use a standard allens instead meteoric. I found that the standards will strip the powder coat and meteoric won't fit. I ground the meteoric allens to fit. Good luck

            Use antiseize and a fresh hex wrench on those aluminum bolts. They will wear quickly and bind up if you don't treat 'em nice.

              Thanks, I've seen that with a couple of the bolts I removed - the heads were stripping. Has anyone ever tried just painting steel bolts?

                I have used both Pro-Bolt's Tasty Nuts and Bikebolts. Bike bolts is cheaper and come with the clips but are powder coated and have smaller heads than OEM.

                I prefer the ProBolt: http://www.probolt-usa.com

                More money but OEM heads and anodized vs. powder so the tool size is the same, and all fit well.

                Good luck

                  Do you know if ProBolt has a "grab bag" of sorts, or would I need to know every single size/length/pitch of bolts I wanted.

                  I love the look of those, but seems like removing each bolt (or looking up sizes) would be a major PITA.

                    ProBolt is going to get me in trouble with the wife. So many different options available, for so many things. Thanks!

                      Ghost,
                      Both companies have "kits" for fairings, windshields, engine etc... I don't know if they have a bag of various bolts that fit here and there.

                      Another thing I didn't mention besides bikebolts having smaller heads, thier washers are plastic also.

                        They are usually chromed, if not stainless steel. Paind will chip near the allen openings, and may bind up if you get paint on the threads. Put 'em in while the paint is soft, and you will have supermegaloctite.
