    I recently lost the muffler hanger bolt for my 2002 VFR and I cant find a replacement anywhere. I've attached a couple pics of the other bolt I still have, and me pointing to exactly where it goes in the bike. Does anyone know where I could get one?

    Thanks

    A good hardware store in the nuts and bolts aisle. Graingers. Fastenal.
    One of the big box stores like Lowes or Home Depot might have it, but I'd try the dedicated hardware stores first.

    It is imperative know what the thread size, length, and thread pitch are....stock is an M8x50x1.25 socket cap bolt, w/M8 flat washer. It would be safe to say it can be replaced with a standard M8 hex flange or hex cap bolt...you just need to confirm the length and thread pitch. 1.25 is the standard corse thread pitch for an M8 bolt. It also depends on what material you want to use, carbon steel or stainless, coated or not coated. Just showing a picture of the bolt isn't going to help.....and searching for a Delkevic exhaust bolt isn't going to return much as search criteria.
