Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Galvanic effect aside (which is negligible in stainless to aluminum mating surfaces) the use of stainless in mounting an engine is preferred for the simple fact of its malleability and that it can actually give with the stress of the engine where grade 8 with a higher RF will shear and there is a neat little product out there called anti-seize to keep down aluminum oxide from forming between the threads. Not my first rodeo folks I have used this same method for years with good success.
