Grade 12 Bolts in Boulder County Area

New here but have you heard of Adam Hull (Former owner / operator of "Scooters" in CS). He specializes in hard to find items and he now operates out of Greeley. Great guy with great connections...................Sean

Grade 8 is the highest "grade" classification (in U.S. ASTM)...you're probably thinking of metric Class 12.9, equivalent to ANSI 'heat treated alloy steel'. (12.9 comes with the KLR subframe bolt upgrade kit)

Geek,

Last time I was in a Lowe's they had grade 8 and metric bolts. Or I am sure that Ace Hardware would have what you need.

Geek,

I know this is not in Boulder but I have gone here several times when I needed something strange and esoteric.

Got a Mig welder, or access to one? My favorite way to remove bolts that have been broken off involves placing a nut over the bolt, (ID of nut should about the same size of the broken bolt) and welding inside the nut, to the broken bolt. The heat helps loosen the threads and you use the nut to turn out the broken bolt.

Just be cautious around the aluminum. If you have enough room, you could use a smaller nut to stay away from the aluminum. It doesn't take much, as long as you get a decent weld between the nut & broken bolt it will turn out.

I got to ride Marc's Norton briefly, and it is one extremely sweet machine.

I haven't owned a Brit bike with 'non-standard' controls since the mid 70's, but it seems so elemental and natural still - the essence of what motorcycling was when I started in the late 60's.

Blake, Ben, Bill, Good to see you all today.

I can see the ride report now. Three killer Bees attacked by the Ozo. And a free cookie.

First steps taken......

I went shopping today, and bought a new compressor with a 20-gallon tank. I also purchased a 15-gallon compressor tank from a craigslist local. Both work just fine. The extra tank not only boosts capacity, but will give me some portable air if needed away from home.

I even took some "before" pics of Suzi-700 to post later on, got her up on the broken centerstand, and made some initial measurements for the carb-swap to follow. Next step: strip her down to the frame, and lug the engine downstairs to my workshop. Then the bodywork goes out for paint, and the fancy Marshall Deep-Tone exhaust gets ordered from Holland.

I've decided that the Ugly Duckling (PE-175) can wait until Suzi is done. The dirty-bike will be easier and cheaper to repair, and I have no plans for what to do with her when I'm done yet, anyway. Since I only need to work 3 days in the next 2 weeks, this'll give me something to do besides housecleaning before Selena arrives next month to visit .

Life goes on........
