Brute Force Fasteners

rgramjet2010-08-10 17:40:12 +0000 #1
Are there any aftermarket body work fastener kits? Ive got an 05 Brute Force 750.

I keep hogging out the phillips heads and/or dealing with rusted and fused bolts. Id love to buy a set of stainless steel fasteners.

Thanks in advance!

My buddy just redone his 07 brute and used 1/4-20 stainless steel bolts with philips heads and nuts and washers and his worked pretty good on all his plastics. Just an option from using OEM fasteners.

I have replaced all of my fasteners for palstics and anything else I can with Aircraft quality harware. I have installed nutplates where there were the Kawi clips and everything is hardened and cad plated. fine thread also. I just feel sorry if I ever sell because they are going the have a hard time finding the hardware I have installed on my machine.

Allen head is the way to go. Stainless too! Thats the next thing on my list.

The only allen head I know of on the brutes are the stupid one on the rear diff. Phillips suck when it comes to atvs. Dirt messes up the threads then you round it off then yer cussing so you got to get the cut off wheel to get it off. Allen head looks cool too.
