Ebay is always good, these are for an 07 and I'm not entirely sure they are all the same , someone will be along shortly to say either way but its worth contacting the seller if not ...

If you do a search, I think there's a list somewhere in the archives. I think CJ posted it some time ago :?

Torx are actually a lot better than allen head ;) just make sure you use a good quality bit and make sure the same as with allen head that the bit is fully engaged in the bolt head.
Adam will probably be along to tell you his trick of using a dab of grinding paste on the end of the bit to stop it slipping out ;) lOl

Thanks for the lists CJ ...... I've always used Custom Fasteners to get all my stainless bits from. Very reliable, knowledgeable and stuff always turns up next day in the post, well recommended :yup:

The bloke that owns Custom Fasteners (name escapes me now :roll: ) was a drag racer of some repute during the Brit twin 'Hog Slayer' era, and certainly knows his stuff - even if he is a bit miserable lOl

I'm not a great fan of stainless fasteners, but I am of Torx heads lOl (the Buell std ones are fine even if the heads get to look a bit scruffy) but you'll find everything you want at the 2 Stafford Classic Bike shows. Even the auto jumble there turns up with all kinds of exotic UNF/UNC aerospace quality bolts, with all sorts of different heads.
