I was looking at replacing all of the screws that are silver with black ones (fairing, hugger, windscreen etc. Has anyone here done this? What is the easiest way to accomplish this? I have considered buying individual screws and also buying a kit. Any of your help will be appreciated.

Bicycle shops are a great resource for alum screws in all kinds of anodized colors.

I'm cheap myself...so I did paint them. It has started looking like sh!t. Taking the plastic off to clean and change the oil has started to wear the paint off. Thanks anyway.

Just a note from several mechanics.........NEVER use those crappy aluminum anodized bolts from LP on covers, only fairings and windshields.

I would like to do the same, I think I am going to get some of the black ones for the street, and blue looked pretty good with my green when I had the blue pm wheels, but don't have them for a 10r, so don't know about the green track stuff, but then again, won't really matter as those will all be covered with a small piece of tape.

Just my .02

Man i've tried all the tricks as far as changin' bolt colors, spray, dip whatever. Theres only one way to do it and make it look like quality work. Get the real deals from pro-bolt or another reputable place. You'll love yourself later for it!!

buying new screws cost money that can go towards other things, but if you dont have a choice you dont have a choice
