919 grab bar bolts

WTB 919 grab bar bolts - any quantity.

I removed the grab bar from the tail of my 9er during Power Commander install, and I placed the four bolts back in their holes finger-tight. I didn't bother to re-install the grab bar.

At some point on my 150+ mile ride Sunday, one of the four bolts decided life of leisure sunning itself in a bar ditch was preferrable to a life staring at my ass, and it decided to bail overboard.

Got a pic of the bolt?

I have a shaved tail on mine, but have a bin with two 919's worth of oem bolts. If I have one just cover the shipping and I will toss it in the mail.

If you have a couple of these, I'll buy the pair plates with reed screw recesses drilled and you can send everything at once.

Product Catalog - Bolt Depot

I've used this place when sourcing some oddball stuff. I got into the habit of replacing regular fasteners with stainless wherever I could. Kind of pricey when you factor in shipping but where else can you find a stainless metric socket head that's 12 cm long with an 8mm thread?

Sea-Tac nut and bolt...I've even ordered crankshaft bearing from them once when the dealer was going to have to order it from Japan.

They have different locations in Seattle area - I think its a different company than seattle nut and bolt - and don't think they have a website...but they can get anything fastener related, if you're looking for something special, or need something in bulk...or if in and/or around Seattle area.

Don't forget McMaster-Carr (McMaster-Carr) - lots of inventory for fasteners (and a bajillion other things too).

local hardware store had them in SS, like $2 bucks a piece, but no rust is a BIG plus to me
