After market fairing bolt kit

I have been looking for an aftermarket bolt kit, bot fill in a few spaces that are missing on my fairings. There appear to be so many to choose from on EBAY and Amazon. I'm hoping to go as close to OEM as possible.

Anyone have any experience or recommendations for specific maker/kit out there?

Thank you!

I have no experience with anything other than OEM. But when I pick up a set for my second set of fairings I'm going with pro bolt.

I put Probolt titanium fasteners on mine. They look great and don't weigh much. Also did the engine covers with Ti Probolt for my additional eye pleasure.

Those Ti bolts sound pricey! Yeesh! OEM are pricey too. I've bought a full set of OEM's because I just couldn't fine a decent set anywhere else, but that was about 3 years ago...

If you're never going to sell your bike, ever - these costs are not really so high. You can spread them over time too. Don't get aluminium anodised bolts, they're too weak (Allen heads can easily round off, leaving the bolt stuck in place) and the anodizing will scratch, etc. For my VFR I got stainless bolts, which also look good.

There's another UK company selling similar bolts which include Dzus fasteners in their range, but I forget the website address right now... I have it in a magazine somewhere...

Thanks for the tip on avoiding those aluminum anodised bolts! Many of the kits I'm looking at include that type. Didn't realize they don't hold up very well.
