Wanted - Front caliper Torx bolts

Hi guys,

Anyone have a garbage pair of RC51 front brake calipers where the 4 outer torx bolts on them are clean (outer two on each side of the caliper)? As in black, not corroded or marked/stripped. I need these bolts for both front calipers, so 8 bolts total. Mine are corroded and I'd like to replace them with a clean set. PM me.

Thx

Gotta be the same bolts on a dozen different Honda's...is there a motorcycle breaker out your way? I am fortunate I have a good friend that owns a very well established local motorcycle breaker (he's also good friends with the owner of Pazzo levers). Unfortunately for me he has parted very few RC51's SP1 or SP2.

So what I'm saying is that if you have access to a breaker go scour around and see if there are Nissin calipers that use the same type of bolt you're looking for.

At least that's what I would do, it also get me out of the house and out of some household chores for an hour or so. Oh ya I get to shoot the shit about bikes and stuff too.

Have you considered buying stainless steel shcs(socket head cap screw) bolts to replace what you have there now? Would help to keep corrosion to a minimum. Folks that run on salted roads usually have to deal with this....mainly because its a pita to clean everything with a tooth brush every time one rides in the spring. Chances are the SS bolts will be cheaper than the oem ones. Oh, and if converting then you don't have to bother with those ridiculous torx heads anymore.

However i checked on cycle-parts.com and they seem to be available. At least it doesn't have a "out of stock" or "unavailable" note next to the part.
Added them in the cart and they sum up to $45.
There are 4 bolts 8x35 and 4 bolts 8x40mm included for a front calipers full set (same size through all RC51 models 00-06)

The Torx head bolt on the calipers is the same size as the Torx head used on the cylinder head bolts for 91-95 ford explorer.... Don't ask how I know thislol The tool is labeled Torx socket T-55

I replaced mine with Pro-Bolt flanged hex titanium bolts. But you can also use socket head bolts too.
Stainless is a good less expensive alternative.
This is a great suggestion Sub....this is on my to do list over the winter when I change caliper seals.
