    Just wondering if I could use a different type of bolt as a replacement for the one that snapped off in the carbs... Its the bolt that holds the airbox to the carbs...

    We have all snapped them at one time or another :help: there are very soft metal
    I will have a few in my bolt box if you can bring an example over.

    I have spares as well, wouldn't recommend a substitute bolt.
