No. But check eBay. There are a few kits for sale right now that are claimed to replace all the engine bolts. Stainless Steel, I think

I've bought Gardner Wescott bolts for the covers off of ebay,bout 1/3 to 1/2 the price of Harley stuff. The quality seems comparable but they arent packaged the same as harly stuff. for example I bought the Harley Alterntor kit that has the alt. bolts and sprocket cover bolts about 3 mos ago When I bought the G/W side cover kit it has the alt/sprocket bolts and the clutch cover kit but not the water pump. The Harley clutch kit comes with the W/P bolts. The derby screws are different too. The HArley kit uses button head s and the G/W kit uses std chrome socket heads. The cam cover kits seem to be the same. i went to G/W 's website but they don't list any V Rod stuff. Emailed em,no reply.Now I guess I have to either buy a clutch kit just for the water pump bolts or wait till they show up on ebay. :ithappen:

I would really like to know the sizes in detail.. this way I can replace them without going thru a dealer..
I will be sizing my hardware on the bike myself... seems its the best way to have it done with the parts manual from the dealer.. :welcome:

Then it may be time to get your ratchet out and start crankin'
Ive got the manual, and there is no fastener size parts list.

The parts bok lists every fastener, it's size and pitch i.e.6mm x 1.0 x 30mm. It also list quantitys used on each part.

I mailed them as well, here's their response:

"We have many different kits for the v-rod,however,we do not sell our
motorcycle kits retail."

I bought a FULL ENGINE KIT by gardner westcott from off e bay for 86.00 with shipping

92 bolts... plus all spacers, washers, everything... really addeded a nice touch.

they included bolts for EVERYTHING on the engine... even ones you'll never use... like the oil pan, etc... I still have 1/3 of them unused... a great deal..

STAY OUT OF THE STEALERS!!!!!!

Be careful when replacing bolts. Generally, you will want to use bolts that are grade 8 or above. These bolts are suitable for structural use.
