-Why you decided to purchase the product -
I wanted to clean up the bike a bit, wanted to get rid of some of the offset colors, so I got a color matched kit. I got the screws only kit since I did not need to replace everything.


-Where you bought it from -
Bikebolts, Motorcycle Parts

-Price -
$30 shipped


-Did the product meet your expectations? How/Why?
Kind of, I read reviews on this website already, which were not too great, so I did not have high hopes for them, but I was only able to use 16 bolts out of the whole kit. The heads are too small, wish they were bigger, some of the bolts are too long, and there were places I wanted to replace but since the bolts did not fit, I couldn't. You are probably better spray painting the stock bolts. On a plus side, the red does match pretty well, and the bolts on the mid fairings don't need to be big since all of it is black already so it matches well.

Here is Jtaugner's review, more technical than mine and spot on. I am just putting this review up to further help other people's decision if they decide to purchase these.

-Would you recommend the product to others?
I wouldn't. especially if you just want to black out your bolts. You are better off spray painting them and saving your money. If your whole bike needs bolts, these might be worth it since bolts can be expensive from honda, but I really can't recommend these.


-Would you buy it again?
No, I would not buy these again. Even though the red is pretty spot on, I would find a way to spray paint them instead, it does clean it up a bit, but still not worth the money, I have a bag of bolts that don't fit anywhere else on the bike.


Now on to the pics. Once again, I apologize for crappy camera and quality. I didn't take before and after pics, or the product itself, but this should be good enough to help visualize it anyways.
