Copy the bolts sizes from the list that you want and ask a seller to put it together for you .
In that listing you get

Water pump left and right engine casing sprocket cover and sump

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?
Did you want one out of ti and cross drilled for wire?
no need to trouble yourself with that, mate.
I use some copper ones I found with a big head and file them to fit.
Greased properly and checked often they'll last a lifetime, and the weight saving will not be worth the effort of making them. But thanks for the offer.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

The sprocket cover which includes the clutch slave cylinder should there not be 5 bolts, 3 for the slave & 2 for the cover itself. I atm only have 4 from your list??

Just a heads up fellas.

I asked for a quote from several ebay sellers, they all came back to me with quotes around the £16 mark. But when I tried to follow up no one seemed like they wanted to bother listing it.

I went to my local bearing supplier to ask for a quote. They said it was cheaper to buy the bolts in 10s, so much that it worked out cheaper to buy even 10 of the one you need 1 of (85mm?) included. So I got about 100 bolts and 100 washers for £19 plus vat.

Did my bike, and now have tons of spares.

Just thought it's worth letting you know, most towns have a decent bearing/fastener supplier somewhere.

The missing bolt is the one on the top just to the right of the slave cylinder its size is M6 / 50mm. Pity none of the ones I have left over are that length :(

Received me bolts from Bolt-Base.

Working methodically, and taking me time from front to back, I come across the forks.

I've fitted the caliper body bolts and the fork pinch bolts. But, I noticed that there wasn't the 4 bolts that hold the caliper to the fork in the kit. :(

Checked the list, and they not there. Bugga. That'll be why they ain't in the order!

So....What size of bolts do I need to order to replace the ones that hold the caliper to the fork itself. 4 off. Cheers muchly! :thumbup:
If it ain't broken...f*ck about with it until it is.
