Have not found an al or ti version of that size. I was just going to take a M10x1.0 Ti bolt and put it in the lathe and make a banjo bolt out of it but Im having a hard time finding a M10x1.0 Ti bolt. You can see the bolts here. Not pretty
Yeah, I also need such banjo bolts and didn't find them anywhere.
I right now wrote a mail to Staubli (company is next to my place), maybe they can help?

Since 2015 starting replacing OEM bolts/screws/washers/nuts with Ti stuff on my bikes I got pretty tired searching the web for overpriced pieces.

Yesterday I finally decided to go a different route: I'm now going to have the bolts being manufactured directly in asia. I hope I found a reliable chinese company. First job is M6 race spec hex flange bolts. About 1600pcs in all sizes. If everything works out fine I'll order all other sizes and let those special things directly being made in china.

How do you feel about Chinese materials?

For non-security relevant parts (I don't know the english expression, in german it's called "nichttragend", translated non-supporting) I have no problems with chinese bolts. Anyway, I'm sure that most resellers got their stuff from china.
I would never put such parts on a aircraft, but for fairings, engine cover bolts and such things they are great.

I have a setup that allows me to test the torque limits of bolts (1% accuracy, 20-200Nm). I'll report results if I ever should get these bolts

BTW: Just got a call back from Stšubli, they provided me with another address since they do not make banjo bolts at all
I'll keep you posted.

Ok. Yes I think it is OK for non load bearing applications of anything that does not require a spec. Generally, anything that comes out of that country that is metallic is crap. Without doing a metallurgical assay I have done the cheap thing and cut some pieces on the lathe and the material has been very soft. Anyhow, here is the mystery Banjo. 30mm in total length, 25mm under the head. Looks like I am making them from a 30mm 10x1.0 Ti bolt as I cannot find these in anything but steel.

Now that is clever! Very good idea.

Forgot the pic. Here is the steel one I got from Staubli with the Brembo banjo mounts. If you can't find it, I guess you have to make it. Just machine the body, cross drill and drill the center in the lathe. Done

Tricky part would be to find an long M10x1.0 screw with a short 10mm shaft under the head.

The other company Stšubli told me is closed until Tuesday. I'll give them a call (but I'm pretty sure they can't help , it's only a retailer).

No problem. Weird stuff is not easy to find. The bolts i have are actually perfect. The thread length is actually the same as the steel banjo. Maybe 10 min worth of work. If i cant find the M12x1.0 in the parts bin, we can always make them as well. I have M12x1.0 Ti bolts.
