Ok, so is the final answer this?
M6 x20 1mm thread pitch fully threaded bolts x25
M8 x16 1.25mm thread pitch fully threaded bolts x30
Is this thread pitch really important

Thanx

Ian I believe SuzaFan was referring to the thread pitch on the bolts and not the thread being posted in the forum :p unless I have misunderstood you both which is highly likely...

Got my bolt kit from Litchfields mate, ask Iain, he stocks them I believe, they were more expensive than the group buy but I don't believe by a huge sum.

I have one of Barrys set in the cupboard. Sly ended up using a different set, so I have this one spare.... dont remember it costing much more than £20. So, £10 to a charity from you and you can have this set (I will arrange postage, etc).

Even cheaper than I remembered...

Seeing this thread was a great reminder as I've been meaning to do a search for ages (so thanks to OP!). Like others mentioned on the thread in the link above, I don't see anything wrong in sourcing and fitting myself so as such been on fleabay this morning and ordered up the lot for 11.04 delivered :flame:

Just to confirm that it is A4 grade stainless and I opted for allen key/socket headed bolts rather than normal hex headed bolts. I think someone mentioned in the other thread about them rounding but my thinking is that they don't need to be that tight and with a little bit of copper slip to aid any future removal - fingers crossed anyway ;)

Anyone wanting to do the same it was via a shop called massiveattack007 (I have no connection with them other than buying these - other shops are available ;)).

I ordered:
30x M6x16mm allen key bolts
30x M8x16mm allen key bolts
30x M6 washers
30x M8 washers
All in A4 marine grade stainless steel.

I agree, and I must admit I only asked TABZ because I thought you had the ones off Graham in the bag

Make sure you get the correct size washers, standard width washers are too narrow and do not grip the under tray, you need the "penny washer" style.
Ian at IZFast who supplied the kits on the mini group buy mentioned in the other thread can still supply the bolts and washers, his tel number is 01908366077

I got mine done by Litchfields when having a service and software upgrade. Probably paid 10x what the parts would have cost to buy but couldnt be bothered with the hassle and wanted it done properly :)

Just beware of the rear Carbon tray as my old ones were all corroded and snapping off. Prob because the existing bolts had never been out before. Finally got it sorted last month when I did my exhaust.
