I’m after a pair of Titanium Tapered Allen Head Bolts size M7 x 25mm…

I’ve tried all the UK market suppliers with no luck and have exhausted all the avenues known over here.. I have the option of buying a length of Grade 5 titanium bar and making them on a lathe, but to be honest I don’t really fancy going down that route..

Most of this Titanium is imported into the UK from China, but since I have no contacts in the East and the obvious language barrier, I thought I’d put out this post on the MV net to see if someone can help me out..

This M7 x 25 mm is an odd size, but as the USA still use imperial sizes, there might be a supplier of titanium bolts out there that stock these bolts..

Any help, advise or contacts would be much appreciated..

Cheers

Poggipolini doesn't make them in 7mm....but it can be requested. I've tried a few places that I know have the best stock.... none have 7mm anything, button, counter sunk, tapered, allen, socket..... zilch

sorry..... good luck finding the bits.

Yoyodyne only has one listed in 7mm - M7x1.0x20. Not sure who else in the States carries titanium fasteners.

Many thanks for the info...

Those are exactly what I'm looking for ( although 25mm in length would be perfect), but unfortunately Pro bolt don't have them in stock, and there is no plan to have them in stock for the foreseeable future..

I tried a company called TiBolts UK who I believe do Ti bolts for mountain bikes, with no luck... I've got a feeling that cycle bolts might be M6 size ?? ..

For some reason, MV have decided to use M7 x 25mm for all their handle bar clamp bolts on the F4 1000cc model range... Don't ask me why they picked such an odd size bolt, maybe they did it to make us owners feel even more special for owning an MV :rolleyes:..

There must be someone out there on the forum that knows were an Ti M7 x 25mm bolt is used on another application.. Surely MV's can't be that unique !!!!!!

I'm sure people in Taiwan would have that because they make all sorts of
sizes bolts in Titanium. You might have better luck finding your stuff on
www.alibaba.com if you couldn't find any contacts from Taiwan thru the
net....

Hope you can find what you wanted.

They are in the online catalog and can be added to the cart, yet the description notes that they are not available separately; only with Yoyodyne or Brembo calipers. I've emailed them requesting clarification.

Hi.. I gave this web link a go but couldn't find anything related to Ti M7 bolts ??? Found a place in China that showed some trick Ti M7 star drive bolts.. Emailed them an inquiry, but had no response so far.. I suspect they won't bother answering my email, as they are probably only interested in selling large orders to huge companies..

I got a reply with a simple "The bolts are in stock." PM me and we'll see about getting some to you. The two bolts you need don't meet the minimum order, but there are some bits I have not previously been motivated to purchase that I could include.
