Default Re: where to buy screws, etc for my bike

If you live in the US. go to a “Fastenal “ they have every screw and bolt under the sun. Plus they have a variety of the same screw to choose from such as: grade 8.8, grade 10, yellow zinc coated, oxidized finish, stainless, and many more . I suggest upgrading all screws (and strips, have never heard of that one before) to stainless steel Allen heads. It will cost under 10 dollars to upgrade every screw in the engine to Allens in stainless. When you go stainless you will never strip a head and it will be one more part on your engine that wont rust over time. Every screw is the same diameter and thread (M6 .1 thread I believe) the only variation you will have is in screw depth.
