    Bolt broke off, new bolt type

    I also had a bolt break of that fastens my exhaust manifold to my exhaust pipe. I have a way to get it out but I figured I would replace all 4 bolts just to be sure. Would you guys just get any good quality bolt from Lowes or Home Depot or is there something better/specific?

    I would order some seadoo bolts and grab one hardend? bolt for the purpose of riding this weekend. By me Ace hardware has a better collection of bolts then either HD or Lowes. You may be lucky and find a nut & bolt speciality shop near you, they would be able to give you a strong SS bolt. Good luck!

    I put lock-tight on the old bolts to be sure they didn't rattle off. Could this have been the cause of the bolt breaking. What do you guys do so that your bolts don't rattle off? or do you not have that problem?

    I use loctite for all my screws, in a pinch you can also use womens or mens (in some cases :O) nail paint, ok for home and non-heat items till I get some loctite. I've lost exhaust screws due to not torquing properly and not using loctite. I usually lose screws repairing something, something to do with a 4th dimension field effect.
