Titanium Bolts from China

Hey guys.

Who has experience that they can share with titanium bolts from China?

I prefer buying American, but on this particular part, they have them in a finish only sellers from HK have.

6pcs Titanium TI Bolt Fit BMX Stem Use M8 x 25mm 6pcs with TI Washer Gold | eBay

My personal experience with them has been both good and bad, with the last one sending me an oil cap with threads that did not fit how they were advertised. They gave me a refund fast though.

With bolts, I would hate to strip our aluminum parts to save on a few bucks. On the other hand, I wont be surprised if some US sellers actually source their parts from China anyway.

I was disappointed with the quality recently of Pro Bolt. I think they are made in China.

I've seen both: high quality bolts and total crap. From Europe and China. There is no general rule. Best Ti parts I've encountered: MotoCorse (Italy) and TPOParts (USA). But they both have no bolts for the Panigale

I stopped buying from ProBolt: They became too expensive and quality isn't worth the price.

Recently I found a small racing company in Swtizerland that preps complete kits for the Panigale. But I had no time to get into this deeper. I'll keep you posted.

Is far as I can see from the Ebay shop of the seller you mentioned in this thread I wouldn't buy from them. Pretty shitty finishing.

I use PROTI forged Ti bolts. Its made in Taiwan by my friend Sherwood Wang (Gunny also knows him) and the quality from his factory is superb.

I have purchased a few Ti screws for the brake levers from podium racing, and the finish and design of the screws was nice and I am very happy. I will probably purchase from them again once I get the need to change some more screws on the pani
