Im in need of a few bolts for my XB12 and just wondered if anyone could recommend somewhere in the UK I could get them from as buying them from overseas would cost more in shipping than the cost of the bolts i imagine. What i need is:

The 2 bolts at the rear of the air filter cover - typical case of someone using the wrong size tool and mashing the torx

And one of the counter-sink bolts that secures the rear brake master cylinder to the frame. One is completely missing

Or if anyone happens to have spare ones knocking about in a tool box or something i’d be happy to buy them :D

Thanks in advance

I was looking at Chester HD site to replace a couple of mine. The air box cover shouldered bolts are £8.11 each! :shock: Not 100% sure, but l think the ordinary torx bolts that screw the air box base to the frame are standard HD at only £ 0.74. ;)

I've probably got all the ones you need frame wise as I changed all of mine on my 1125r to stainless. Give me a list & I'll look through the box of bolts, definitely got the tank cover ones.
PM your address & I'll send them on to you. JB

1125's are all metric T30's, XB's are imperial T27's :roll:
