I have some used ones, which people frown upon as you're not 'technically' supposed to reuse them. The EBR kits with the copper washers were still floating around if you want new. If memory serves, they were around $80/set

EBR shows theyíre on back order. I donít know what the odds are they will get more of them. How much would you want for yours?

For what it's worth, I've reused them on my daily driver RX (more brake power, more weight and more horse power !) without problem.
I've also reused them on my XB12s, again, without problem.

Just use a torque wrench, don't "over" torque.

Yeah, apparently my torque wrench broke and I over torqued them.

I agree - just don't over torque. I've used them before, but the purist scream not to, as does Buell service manual. That said, I'll give you a set for $5 plus postage.

Replacement bolts come with a dry locking compound applied. As did the original bolts at installation.
The dry compound helps to ensure the proper lubrication for correct (torque) clamping force of the fasteners.

That said, I've cleaned and reused rotor and rear sprocket bolts several times with no problem.
Used blue loctite and factory torque spec.

Thats a very nice gesture skipbarberman! .

I have also re-used rotor bolts with no issue: )

FYI, the EBR site has always said 'backorder' of the EBR kit, but consistently will ship them within a week or 2. She says, 'We have all the parts in the back, we just haven't had time to put all the kits together and update the site accordingly'.

I just got a set of bolts washers and spacers last week from St. Paul. Individual parts not the kit.
