Bolt vendors - other than dealers?
Gents, looked unsuccessfully for threads on this subject - anyone know where to buy replacement fasteners (in my case, front engine mount nuts 2010V)?
Kawasaki advises to not re-use these fasteners, I suspect they're torque-to-yield. Installing crash bars and discover torque wrench has failed and stripped out the threads on the nut on one side.
M10 x 1.25 is 'just' fine thread metric (a jam nut in this case), so far I would have to buy in a box from online fastener vendors, or $4 @ at dealer - not life threatening, but seems a lot of $ like all OEM stuff, and will take 5-7 business days to get.
Really looking for (1) known good dealer for fasteners from many of you that farkle a lot, and (2) any thoughts on simply using a different SAE fastener (replace bolt and hex jam nut) for about $1 - specifically on another thread some advised some of these fasteners are meant to shear off before something more important breaks - grade 5 perhaps?
Kawasaki doesn't seem to have actual bolt specs available beyond size and thread pitch.
KAW part #s 92015-1188 NUT,LOCK,10MM,BLACK (front nut) and just in case 92210-1081 NUT (lower nut).
Wisdom gratefully appreciated.
