Ah, but can they sell you the rectangular headed bolt to repair the starter motor lead mounting?

In Ti?

Drilled for lockwire?

Anodised Y124P Shining Pearl Yellow?

Delivered and fitted by an attractive young lady while I wait?

For under a pound, cash?

Can they?

I don't need one, you understand, it was just an enquiry.
I make mine out of old greenhouse bolts and grind bits off them until they fit, sort of.

I wonder what a full Ti kit would cost?
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

Indeed... At a guess, a small fortune.

Iain from Boltbase says if he gets the sizes for the fairing screws he'll do them also (flanged button heads for fairing, mudguard, huggers etc). I may get my rusty sh1t together and give him an order.
I'm so unlucky that if there is such a thing as re-incarnation I'll come back as me!

Replace them with honda parts only .
And use thread lock . You don't want them snapping or coming loose do you !!!!!
