Default Stainless Primary Bolts

One of the allen heads on one of my primary bolts is starting to round off a bit and I want to swap them all out for stainless. I have found a kit for replacing them with chromed bolts. Link belowe

Anyone know where you can get a similar kit but stainless. I went to my local hardware store but all of there allen head bolts that are stainless have different shoulder lengths than the HD ones.

The only thing I haven't found with them was a 3/4-16 titanium nut.

The Moco shall use SS bolt but, for cost reason don't. Have you remarked the rust on your primary bolts. They rather pay to have the H-D logo on them ??? When they judge a bike during vintage contest , the use of other than Moco bolts will deduct lot of points.
The dealer love this situation by selling you expansive kit.

i did my 07 and untill the day i traded it in they looked perfect although you do have to remember that the stainless bolts only take about 2/3 the torque to get the same stretch so becareful or they CAN snap off if over torqued..stainless bolts are NOT stronger they are harder which makes them have a lower grade value and lower torque value..you can get really high end stainless fasteners but they would be $300.00-$400.00 for a complete set..

imo the gardner westcott bolt kit shown in OP is the best deal and they are grade 8 fasteners..just my .02

Well after doing some searching around on the interwebs I think I am going to just buy this cheap kit to get it done for the rest of riding season then order a nice one and do it again this winter. My wife is due with our first child any day now so money is pretty tight.
