Cylinder studs

Recommended Posts

I want to replace my cylinder studs but OEM are like $5.00 plus each. Can I just go to the hardware store and get them? I’m asking because I’m not sure if they are heat treated or not because of the greenish color Yamaha uses on them.

unless they are stripped why would you replace them?....I would think every bolt on this bike is heat treated to atleast a grade 8. You can heat treat your own with a torch and rapid oil cooling them.
