Thread: Places to Get Stainless Fastners

  1. #17
    I've started using http://www.inoxbolt.co.uk/ and had good service from them. Hopeless online ordering system - but if you give them a ring they are very helpful and want your business.

    I think my previous 1150GSA had a lot of the bolts replaced with A4 ones, because they looked bloody good. The current 1150GSA has several rusting bolts which look crap. When I've got the time and space, I will certainly be willing to pay a bit more for A4 quality replacements.

    I have used a guy called Chris Shaw, he sells BMW specific sets on ebay. Good value and good service, he is based in Lincs and manufactures on his own CNC machine.

    I believe he supplies a few well known aftermarket parts suppliers.

    Do you know his Seller name on Ebay? I found his website - is £120 for a 1150 kit good value? Prices on Ebay seem all over the place, but I don't mind to pay for quality.

    Use HT engineering in Chessington guys.

    The guy there is very helpful, very cheap and will source/make bits if it aint in his catalogue
    I use copious amounts of bolts etc etc at home and work and dont use anyone else for my supplies.

    Ps , ,ive no connection with the company at all.

    Tried inox bolt and they are very good for individual bits or selection boxes or even full sets. Not BMW bikes but everything else apparently.

    Quick and reasonable cost. Parts look good too.

    Abbots fasteners in Frome, Somerset are always very obliging and I think very reasonably priced

    Not bike specialists by any means, but a wide range of stuff. I bought some bigger stuff for a non-bike project.

    A2 is made from 304 grade st/st.
    A4 is made from 316 grade st/st.
    A4 is a better grade, but not neccessary on a motorcycle.
