You have to know what you want though as they're not bike kit specific,although they do carry a good range of stock.

There used to be a guy that went round the bike shows with a van full of every sort of stainless fasteners even obscure old British threads like BA and Cycle.

He was cheap as f*kc and used to have a website ,think it was Steves stainless or something like that but last time I tried I drew a blank.

I doubt any small difference in head dia's will matter or be noticeable tbh.

The only issue could be if the OEM fasteners have scuffed paintwork and the new heads are slightly smaller,even then just use a washer and you're good.


That should save having to cut & paste Wink

Best bit of workshop kit I have ever bought is my hydraulic table........as for fasteners, give raceboltuk.com a go, along with Kays Fasteners on the bay. Good prices too.
Probolt make some quality stuff, but they are not cheap
