Motorcycle Bolt Kits?

900rr build snag... (as if I dont have enough lol)



I am in need of hardware for the cowls/plastics. Problem is there are several different sizes of bolts and even more so a problem they are all half turn on threaded bolts.

Online I find that these half turn bolts are $2-10ea... no joke. Imagine how many I will need...

My other option, thanks to the advertisers above...

http://www.bikebolts.com/catalog/hon...165088380b1131

I would require the one w the fasteners as well. Not to say this will be without headache; the upper to mid cowl has rivoted on in two spots. I highly doubt the threaded fasteners provided would be direct replacements.

Does anyone have ideas? Experience w this site? I want to make sure these bolts are of decent quality if Im going to spend $70 bux on fasteners lol

Thanx!

I have black powdercoated stainless bolt kit from them. The bolts are good quality but not exactly like the oem. The bolt heads are not the same size as the bigger head oem bolts, they use black plastic washers. I didn't really like that too much but other than that they are good. I think they have a disclaimer stating that all hardware is not identical to original. I am pleased with quality so far, had them about a year

I bought a Pro Bolt kit and it sucked. They are not OEM quality and they sent sleave type washers to simulate the shank area.

My initial plan was to use hex bolts and washers w teflon washers. However I need to change out the clips or something first.
