Oxidised Bolts
« on: March 22, 2015, 04:49:23 pm »
Hi

The bolts holding the windscreen oh have oxidised a little.  I would like to clean them up.  Any suggestions or do I have to replace them?

Did mine I think I posted some pictures somewhere. 

Any way I used Solvol Autosol and a dremmel with polishing wheel on it.  Came up looking so good I decided to do a lot more of the bolts. 

That was a year ago and they probably need it again but not as bad as they were.

I have replaced a lot of the bolts on the Tiger and the Sprint with probolt anodized ones.  You can get a lot of different colours as well.

That's a tiny thing that sort of spoils the Trophy - not just the New Trophy but the First Generation ones too..

In the past I've used Pro-Bolt for replacement Fairing and Windscreen fasteners - their polished Stainless Steel ones are really top quality and providing you use a "good" allen key they don't burr-up or round off at all. They are a bit pricey but I don't mind paying for stuff that works.

Thing is Pro-Bolt haven't as yet produced kits for the New Trophy for some reason...but as they are fairly local to me it might be worth a phone call and perhaps a visit..

If I get any news worth spreading I'll let you know..
