Some of you might be aware that recently I have been after some titanium bolts for the F4 1000 series handle bar clamps.. To my dismay I found that MV had chosen to use the uncommon M7 size bolts for this application..

Although, these bolts are available from the odd World wide supplier, they tend not to keep them in stock.. My normal supplier couldn’t help out, nor could other various retailers who advertise M7 bolts on their web sites …

Thankfully, I managed to find a UK manufacturer of Titanium products that was willing to produce these bolts for the MV community.. They operate to the highest standards as one would expect from a company that supplies titanium bolts direct to one of the leading F1 motor racing teams on the Grand Prix circus ( the only clue I’ll give you here is that the Team Principle is called Denis .. enough said)..

I have fitted these bolts to our F4 Superleggera bike, and have attached pictures for you guys to view.. Your feedback is always appreciated, so let me know what you guys think ….

If anyone wants a set of these or any other Titanium bolts then please feel free to PM me and I’ll get some prices.. Because this company is a manufacturer of these Ti products, they are prepared to supply our MV community at a much more competitive pricing structure than most of the current market suppliers..

Do all the fasteners us Torx heads? Why didn't you have them make it with the traditional socket head cap screw?

Hey CAG... You can have what ever bolt head tightening type you require.. The reason I requested Torx heads is that they have a less tendency to round off.. If you’ve ever used titanium bolts before, you might have found that the conventional Allen head bolts round off very easily and can’t withstand high torque settings.. This is why F1 & MotoGp teams opt for this type of drive for most of their external bolt fixings..

This manufacturer doesn’t supply the Torx tools, but you can buy the tool sets in any motor factor.. As far as the cost of the Torx tool sets are concerned, if your using titanium fasteners on you’re machine, the last thing on you’re mind is the budget restriction on a set of Torx sockets.. I believe that Halfords sell a full set of these sockets for £15..

Tor-X fasteners are becoming quite commonplace in both cars and bikes. The primary benefit, as already mentioned, they are less prone to rounding or stripping out the head then an Allen hex or common cap screw. The tools are readily available everywhere. I have a set of sockets that have been in my toolbox for years. Snap-on, Craftsman, any tool supplier.

And your Ti bolts look really nice, by the way.

JDS I may be interested, I need various bolts in replacement of the corroded steel ones on my bike...
You sure the price is competitive to a place like pro-bolts for instance ?

Hi Erick..

Yes.. This company actually manufactures their own titanium products as previously stated, and therefore can supply the finished product at a more competitive price than most UK retailers..

I have been using PRO-BOLT for the last 6 years as a trade customer and there is nothing wrong with their level of service..

It’s just that I found myself in the situation that I needed a non standard bolt size, and this titanium manufacturer was able to help out with my request, and provided levels of service that I can only describe as outstanding..

The bolts they supplied were top quality grade 5 specification as you would expect from an F1 Team supplier, and their pricing structure is more competitive than what I’m currently paying for my titanium supplies …

As you might already know, Torx drive bolts are more costly to produce than the Bog standard Allen Head bolt..

Erick, if you need any bits and pieces, then please let me know what you need and I’ll try and get a price for you…without say that also goes for any other member on this Forum..

I believe if someone comes across a supplier that can benefit the MV community at large, then why not share that information without crossing anybodies line..

Other members have helped me in the past to source various parts for my machine from suppliers all over the World, and that is what this site is all about.. and hope it continues that way.... :)
