Default Best place for OEM hardware?

When I stripped my bike down to get my subframe welded, I realized the previous owner used random hardware of varying sizes to attach the shrouds to the radiators.

I priced out the hardware from Go Fasters and was shocked that it was going to cost $52.98. I know OEM hardware can get costly...but wow. Almost willing to swallow that pill until I saw shipping. They wanted $11.95 for their cheapest option. I can't imagine paying nearly $75 for this basic hardware. Not mention it could fit in a small padded envelope for $3 shipped. Worst case $5.95 for USPS Priority in there small flate rate box.

Are there any other options out there for this hardware? Rubber grommets, the plastic tabs, etc.

Local hardware store can solve that at a 1/4 of the cost. Every bolt/nut on mine is a 10mm or a hex that all match in size.

OK guys...on that line I need a few 7mm X 30mm pinch bolts for the triple clamps. I have looked around town with no avail. I technically only found one stripped but others are close. Suggestions?

i ordered 7x30 from stig's fasteners for a reasonable price, but now it appears they don't export anymore. and i'm out. fuller metric has 7x30 in stock, i'm trying to source some now.


edit- i was wrong they still export. but they are out of 7x30...

But what about the rubber bushing? Thats my biggest issue. Or do people not run them. That works too.

You might try a "Bolt" motorcycle hardware kit not the cheapest but if you have to have the OEM look ???

This rubber bushing mount with associated hardware. This one is beat and it's entirely missing on the other size. As well the rubber grommet above in this picture that the side panel pops into is missing.



You cans see the two empty holes on this side of my radiator.

I usually keep a handful of the rubber grommets in my but ran out recently. Lowe's had some that were pretty close in size.
Go Fasters doesn't ship by USPS becuase he can't track the shipment. Mark told me he had a lot of problems with USPS delivery.
