    Hope part # for "Torks" bolts for reservior top covers
    One of my mono Hope brakes came with (used) this awesome Torks bolts that don't get deform/damage like the allen counterparts do.

    So now I'm looking to replace the bolts in all my other Hope's (8 sets) with the Torks, can somebody help me with the part number so I can order them from Hope (I search for about 1 hour but did not find anything closely related.)

    If you can get a thread size you can get them in bags for cheap at www.mcmastercarr.com.

    Call Hope. I wouldn't be surprised if they just give them to you. I recently bought my brakes from them directly as they were not in stock in the US at that time. Pretty cool!

    But Fastener express may have them, I call them after the holidays..

    Oh I did, I even got their code from them #HBSP111, but they also assure me the bolts where at Mcmaster's for much cheaper ($0.50 a pair from Hope)

    I order a bag of a 100 (minimum order) keep you post it in how they fit, for sure hate the stupid allen bolts that strip so easy even with the proper and sharp allen wrenches (some of my brakes I got used and the heads where strip already)

    Next time you/anyone need something like this ... Look for a place like Copper State Bolt & Nut in your area.

    This place has given me small quantity (4-6) items for free, or charged very little for larger quantities.

    I got the zink coated bolts today and they work perfect.

    But since I have so many of them, I want to offer the rest to be purchase (I hope is not a problem since they cost so little) in any case you get 12 bolts including shipping (in the USA) for One dollar..

    Just send me a PM to get my paypal account..

    Yes I know they are standard, that is how this whole thing got started when I got a new Hope brake with them and I want to update all my brakes to the new bolts..
