Pre-drilled bolts for safety wiring?

Does anyone have a good RECENT source for pre-drilled bolts for our bikes, so I can safety wire my bike? I HATE drilling bolts for safety wiring and if I can buy them ready to go, I would prefer it.

Cheers.

They are easy to do, the brake bolts are relatively soft. Save your pennies and just do it!!!!

Try Pro Bolt and Proti. There are quite a few others if you search the net.

I have used Pro Bolt but found their quality not as good as Proti. Lots of guys on here like Gunny and myself swear by Proti. Great service and product but one of the most expensive.

I think Gecko likes Proti too. I do not race though and usually do not use the drilled ones as I do not safety wire. I just like the lightweight and bling of the Ti.

i seriously HATE drilling bolts; I have done so many that I'm just done with it... Rather pay someone else to do it, or buy ready drilled.

I use Pro-bolt race spec (pre-drilled) Titanium all over my race bikes. Love them.

Agreed. Easy enough to do and a good skill to have if you go racing or do lots of track days.

ProTi is great, found some other small dealers, but all in Europe
Two years ago I bought a 50 years old drilling jig 2nd hand on Ricardo (swiss marketplace like Ebay): Reglus drill jig. Super easy to drill perfect holes into the screw's head.

I placed an order with ProBolt before my bike even came. Quality is excellent, shipping and communication were both great. Their website is very easy to search by size which is my preferred way.

I drilled all of my bolts myself; however, I eventually replaced my drain plug with a super magnetic one, which just happens to be pre-drilled.
I highly recommend this plug; the magnet is super strong!
