Stainless Spire Bolts?

Recommended Posts

Having replaced pretty well all of the fasteners (where appropriate) on my 110 with stainless steel versions, I'm loath to reuse the plain steel spire bolts that hold the front panels in place. I've searched high and low, but can't seem to find anyone who supplies them. I therefore thought I'd seek the collective wisdom from this fine site - can any of you help me out with a supplier, please?

Thanks, but I can't see anything like them on their website.

Edited to add: I should have made it clear that while I can see the kit of bolts they offer, what I actually wanted was the original style spire bolt, but in stainless, rather than an alternative!

Try eBay, just put stainless spire bolts in and quite a few sets and others came up .

Thanks, but none of the ones I've seen on there are anything like the original pattern, the vast majority being for motorcycle fairings!

Sadly, nothing appropriate comes up - I've tried it frequently, each time with the naive hope that I didn't look hard enough in the last attempt!

This is something I've been looking for for years also, I just don't think they actually exist for some reason.

I bought and fitted some about 7 years ago, but can't remember where.

Although I believe these are correct https://www.accu.co.uk/en/phillips-self-tapping-pan-screws/372278-SIPT-No-14-3-4-A4

Check the measurements though 😉

Thanks, but the spire bolts we're talking about are not self-tappers - they are like 'proper' bolts, but with a quick thread on them.

On LR Series website they are listed as ACME bolts --- http://www.lrseries.com/shop/product/listing/2648/AM605061-ACME-BOLT-OUTER-WING-TO-BULKHEAD.html?search=AM605066&page=1

so you need to talk to roadrunner & coyote to find out how to order stainless steel version if they exist from  ACME Corporation  :rofl:

 

but seriously try these guys http://www.acmestainless.co.uk/results_nuts.asp?Category=49

I meant to thank you for the link to a2stainless.co.uk, but got side-tracked (so thank you!) - I've used him loads of times before, and every time has been a pleasure - I will send him an email and see if he can help.

As for the ACME thread form designation - it certainly looks though it could be - it would be a great help to know if it is!

Sadly, a2stainless.co.uk tell me that these are not available in stainless. It's therefore a question as to whether I can be bothered to go and make some myself!
