O.k. I posted this on the old forum, but I guess it's no longer up.

Can somebody suggest someplace where I can get OEM style flange bolts (metric).
Honda's prices are kinda high.

I've tried Fastenal.com but the numbers and sizes don't match up. Maybe somebody
can help clear up what I'd look for. Their prices if they could match seem to be 1/3 honda's.

Example:
Honda part #: 90150-MK2-770 / Description: Bolt, Flange 10x72 / Price $6.31

If I buy from Honda, I'll have over $750 in bolt costs (3 machines)

I don't want the allen head, stainless steel kits either.

flanged bolts are tough to come by. are you sure fastenal doesn't have any? a 10x72 is only a 10mm diameter by 72mm long, nothing fancy. only problem is that fastenal wants you to buy 100 of them, can't get anything individually. there's also some webstores that sell nuts and bolts. try googling metric flanged bolts.

I know that Orchard Supply hardware has a good selection of flanged metric bolts. Not sure if OSH is only a west coast store, but try some hardware stores or see if you can find a place that specializes in hardware. We have one here that carries tons of fasteners. Make sure you get the right thread pitch. I think most Honda bolts are 1.25 pitch.

Oh Dave, how we missed you when you were gone. :wacko:

buy a 250R, part it out, keep the bolts. All my spare hardware is from parting out my Banshee years ago.
Thought about that, but I've asked people who are parting them out and most the bolts are
really old and mostly corroded.

In most cases this is true, but they clean up nice with a wire wheel on a bench grinder. ;)

..some already realize this I even know how to insure they stay "cleaned up nice" by doing even more to the bolts etc ,..before installing the hardware ;)

Thanks Dave, and No I can't swing $750 for bolts. I'm going to keep looking.

Steve, it has nothing to do with elbow grease. Unless you have some tricks. I've tried polishing agents and
wire wheels. As far as I know they are zinc coated/plated and that protects them and keeps them shiney
but after 20 years there is just no way to restore that as far as I know.

nutsandbolts.com has what you need:



Here's the page on their site - don't know what the prices are...

http://store.nutsandbolts.com/meflbojis.html

Also, when I lived in Tacoma, WA, I'd drive into town and hit this place up for anything I needed - they always had what I needed, no matter what the fastener was - Tacoma Screw. They rule. They'll send you whatever you need, where ever you are:

Metric isn't graded like SAE stuff, man. Grade 8, Grade 5 - that's all SAE. Metric stuff is different in how they list the grade. 8.8, 10.9, etc.

Here's a hardness grade breakdown:

SAE:
  • Grade 2 (74,000 psi, Hardware grade)
  • Grade 5 (120,000 psi, Automotive grade)
  • Grade 7 (133.000 psi, Automotive grade)
  • Grade 8 (150,000 psi, Machine tool grade)
Metric:
  • 5.8 - equals an SAE Grade 2
  • 8.8 - equals an SAE Grade 5
  • 9.8 - equals an SAE Grade 7
  • 10.9 - equals an SAE Grade 8
