Good day to all.  A little story to set the mood .....
September is my month every two years for an MVI on my 2005 Silverwing.

I had thought the MVI required more than 3/32" of tread depth to render a pass of the inspection.  And ... my rear tire was just on the line for that tread depth.

So I ordered a tire from my local dealer and had the tire in hand about 10 days later.  ( I went with another Michelin Power Pure.)  So I removed the rear wheel all set to take it to a shop for the switch.  But decided to check with Motor vehicle requirements for this tread depth and found they want 2/32".  That isn't much but for the amount of riding I'm doing that amount of rubber may last a while ; and why waste a tire with a bit of life left.  To be sure, since the local dealer will probably be the inspection station, I called to check their take on the matter.  Yup 2/32" tread will pass.   So I started the re-assemble.

 Checking the rear brakes I found lots of brake pad and enough rotor thickness.  The front pads were thin and questionable so I replaced the pads.  To complete the job I grabbed my trusty torque wrench and proceeded with caution.  All done and snugged but wanted to check the rear caliper bolts without the torque wrench.  Just gave them a bit of pressure with the socket and driver.  

MISTAKE ! ! !

I broke one of the two M8X50 Flange Bolts.  The other one looked stressed.  So off to the dealer for two bolts.... or so I thought.  Not in stoke nor in stock at Honda Canada.  Earliest estimated delivery was mid November and maybe not until January.  Off to a bolt supplier ...no luck.  I did find M8x50 Hex Head Cap Screws at Princess Auto (Similar to the US Lowes) And with a washer this should work.   But my question ...... Does anyone have a recommendation of a supplier of these bolts.  Partzilla has them but they don't ship to Canada, as far as I can tell.

Moral of this story ....trust your torque wrench. Your comments will be appreciated.

Mike

First, the Princess Auto equivalent in the USA is Harbor Freight. Lowes is more like Home Depot or Rona.

Second, we have a Bolts Plus where I live. They usually carry every shape and size of bolt, nut, screw and fastener I've ever needed. Also, our local Fastenal store usually has all kinds of fasteners as well but I find them pricier. Another name we can access is Debrasco or something like that. I obvious don't shop there but I have driven by it.

Since you know the bolt you want, perhaps asking the aliens (Google it) will help? It's likely going to be an industrial/commercial hardware supplier that will carry what you want. Good Luck Mike.

Maybe try a local motorcycle wrecker; they usually have a bin full of surplus fasteners, and the Silverwing will use a common size across lots of Hondas.

Thanks for the help ...

Yes Harbor Freight is what I had in mind.

I stopped at Fastenal in Dartmouth this afternoon. Locked up tighter than a jail. Had to call from the parking lot and got nowhere with that. I see Wurth in Guelph has the bolt in a minimum package of 10 for about $27. I also see Fastenal in Halifax lists the bolt for $1.22. The Dartmouth shop had signage indicating minimum purchase of $20. I haven't checked with TransWorld in Dartmouth yet.

Anyway I think I can find the right bolt now. But those from Princess Auto will do for now.
Again ...thanks for your replies.
