    My brother had this painted on the back of his yacht:

    Turned 60 this year. Definitely applying a bit of this philosophy.

    You must have ordered it by part number, that same bolt is used on more then half the bikes on and off the road

    Yes, I wanted to make sure I got the right one. I am not sure it matters though. They are saying they are behind on processing. Might have been able to get it faster from dealer. Ordered it online. Did not want to take the time to go to dealer. So easy to just have it shipped to door step.

    they do have specialty shops that sell nothing but fasteners, and shops that sell nothing but roller bearings. Highly recommended way to save a bunch of money.

    ... or motorcycle scrap yard even cheaper and stock is never in question, you just go there with a wrench, find what you need and throw the owner a few bucks.

    Was able to get the broken bolt out. Was easier than expected.

    I have looked for specialty fastener shops locally. The only ones I have found are wholesale and deal in large quantities.

    No rush I guess. I will wait for my bolt. Hopefully soon.
