Titanium rotor bolts & caliper bolts cheap

Just bought these for myself so thought I would share.

Rotor bolts:

M6X20 Titanium Screws 6AL4V Aerospace 4pc Button Head | eBay

Stock rotor size is M6 x 17mm, these are M6 x 20mm & I have checked, there is plenty of space for the bolts to go into the wheel. You will need to buy 3 qty as you will need 12 bolts for the stock wheel. 600F3 wheel, no clue.

Caliper bolts:

M8X35 Titanium Torx Head Screws 4 Pcs 6AL4V Aerospace Grade | eBay

Stock size is M8 X 32mm & these are M8 X 35 mm & I have checked they will fit as there is plenty of space for the bolt to go through. NOTE that these are torx bolts, so a torx bit will be required. I have torx bits so it wasn't a concern for me.

All of the above for a grand total of $26.36 including shipping. Not bad at all.

FYI, these are grade 5 bolts, same as those sold by Pro Bolt.

pretty sure those are not "torx" head bolts... but more of a 12 point alen variety.... easy to stip... no thanks.

any "weight savings" by going TI will be negated by the fact they are all 3mm longer...

So an additional 3mm is going to make them the same weight as their steel counter parts?

As for the striping, well I will be the guinea pig & let you know.

More than likely yes... hell even the change between steel and Ti bolts in total is pretty much minimal.

I will take the stock bolt & this one to someone who has a decent enough scale & check it out.

From what I understand, ti should be close to 50% less weight. Since these guys are a bit longer, I estimate them to be 40% lighter. Not that even a 100% lighter weight will make a difference on the 919 but I needed new rotor bolts & the amount I spent on these is a LOT less than what some folks spend on fender eliminators
