View Full Version : Nut for the header pipe.

I have lost one of the nuts off my header pipe.

Any one know what spec the nut is? Size, thread etc????

I have tried a couple I had sitting around but none fitted.

Go check out ACE hardware, I was able to find some steel lock nuts. Not the kind with the nylon insert, the 1-piece steel.

That's a great site Buellysses!

Do you know of a UK based company like this? I am not sure they will want an order for just two nuts all the way to the UK.....

It really sucks when you lose one of your nuts.

I was holding back saying that dustin...

Boy Adventure, I'm striking out... I know McM does ship international, but you probably won't be able to buy just 1 or 2. You'd have to buy a pkg of 100 ($10) plus whatever the shipping costs are.

I'd just take a spin to the local hardware store and see what they have.

That's what I thought.

All this just to get one of your nuts back!

I found all the nuts and bits that i needed fron the Hog Father!

It's a custom bike shop in Southport who deal with HD's and build their own bikes. A good little find.

The bikes all well now.
