Dress up engine bolts and caliper bolts
« on: Mar 21, 2021, 03:22:51 pm »
I just finished dressing up my black engine by covering the stock bolts with black bolt caps.  I've added some photos to see what I mean, (including before and after):

First attachment is right side with black caps.
Next attachment is right side without, for comparison.


I think it looks better with the engine caps. If you do too, and want some of these, they are purchased here:  https://www.probolt-usa.com/aluminum-button-insert-m6/

Order Aluminum Button Insert M6, AlPColor: Black as this is the size that will fit your engine bolts.

Note these are not plastic, they are aluminum and they are made with a rubber gasket on the stem that holds them into place. These come in various colors if you're into something really flashy. These also come in bigger sizes to fit other bolt caps.

I also bought some brake caliper bolt caps that also fit over my foot peg mount bolts (see attachments). 

I got them here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/281971068919?ViewItem=&item=281971068919&v=1&utm_source=unp&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=RT000090&utm_unptid=&ppid=RT000090&cnac=US&rsta=en_US(en-US)&cust=&unptid=&calc=5cc73ac3dc5a3&unp_tpcid=null&page=main:email:RT000090&pgrp=main:email&e=cl&mchn=em&s=ci&mail=sys&appVersion=1.32.0&xt=104038

Last (but not least) I ordered a Testers Black Epoxy pen and used it to paint the tops of some bolts I couldn't reach to put in the caps. This pen is very handy for a black bike quick touch-ups too.
