Long engine mounting bolts like these are hard to get true, the deflection in the middle is considerable. Although its ‘only a bolt’ i can’t help getting them as accurate on the shank as possible, anything over 2 thou over the length is too much. So they take time to make, but are worth it when done.

Titanium Yamaha R1 front wheel spindle and suspension bolts

Then after i’d finished all the alloy stuff i went back to titanium to make a font axle and suspensions bolts for an early Yamaha R1. The earlier models have an external thread whereas later models have the end of the spindle tapped and a bolt to match. The front spindle as standard had a tommy bar hole through and extended beyond the fork leg, i’ve done my usual modification and put a hexagon socket in the end, makes it all neater, sexier and lighter!
