Q What bolts can I use safely in my sus­pen­sion?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

Is it safe to use nor­mal nuts and bolts from my lo­cal sup­pli­ers for the rear sus­pen­sion link­age on my Suzuki Ban­dit 600? I can get all the nuts and bolts lo­cally for the price of one OE bolt from my dealer. Al­lum206, email

AGareth Evans, Re­ac­tive Sus­pen­sion If the orig­i­nal bolts are a flange head then the re­place­ment bolts and nuts should be the same. Wash­ers could be used but the over­all depth must be checked for clear­ance, this is par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant on the shock bot­tom bolt. The bolt shank length and di­am­e­ter also needs to be the same as stan­dard.
