    Bits and Pieces....

    Wondering if anyone can give me advice on where to purchase hardware.
    I seem to be missing bolts that hold the calipers to the F3 front end. Also, once I get the new disks up front I am supposing they don't send hardware to bolt 'em on. Another thing I need is the bolts to mount the subframe on.

    In short, I need a lot of bolts and have no clue where to start looking.

    Anyone?

    Does part unlimited sell this stuff? I have a dealer account with them.

    If it's just bolts, measure the threads and go to the Home Depot. They'll have metric stuff in the hardware section. If you want it to be pretty, you could always check a motorcycle junkyard in your area.

      Someone on here had extra subframe bolts, Look in the for sale section.

        I just used the online vendors and bought Honda bolts etc.
        Didnt fancy taking any chances on using a bolt that wasnt the correct rating when messing around with brakes!
        My F3 front end is still on the bench but Ive got everything I need to get it into/onto the Hawk..

            I would warn you against Home Depot hardware. Their zinc coated shiny metric hardware of theirs is really inferior. As another forum member already mentioned, use caution in regards to hardware selection. I seem to remember a kid who replaced the bolts on his front rotors with aluminum hardware and tore them off the wheel causing Lockhart Phillips to send out a press release stating what should have been obvious in regards to their aluminum bolts.

                I believe that Ive used the first three.
                As they all post the bits don't hold your breath for delivery times.
                If you driving around town dude check out the dealer up ine the high 40's on the west side of Manhattan. Might be more expensive but chances are they will have it there and then or perhaps next day.

                  I use Ace Hardware or True Value Hardware for all of my bolts and nuts. They usually have a much better selection of metric stuff than Home Depot...

                      I work in bolt manufacturing. That said there are 2 grades 8.8(=grade5 & 10.9=grade

                      Rotor bolts should be steel or titanium only!

                      You can pull a lots of spec's off the net. I have switched any hcs(hex cap screws(bolts) to shcs socket head cap screws I need less tools to work on bike JMO.

                      Pm me if ya need more info
