    Yes, I recommend blue loctite as a anti-corrosion measure.

    If you own one of these bikes, I'd jump on this purchase. My stock set not only looked like crap after a few years but one of them got rounded out and I had to use an extractor to remove. The SS replacements are quality and look great after several seasons and maintenance intervals.

    Hi Todd, checking in (publicly) to see if there is any motion on this. I didn’t see anything opening up in the store, so maybe there’s a delay. Figured I’d ask here in case anyone else noticed and wants to make an order as well.

    Guys, as I've stated many times, the Forum here isn't my Inbox... I don't catch every post. I've been left standing holding dozens of products that people said they wanted here, and didn't follow through when the time came.
    Please send a note via the purchase page; https://gtmotocycles.com/products/gt-v7-iii-v9-stainless-valve-cover-bolts
    COVID has delayed everything, but things are slowly coming back online. I do have a small batch scheduled to be made soon. I will post again here when I open up pre-orders.

    Are there 3 or 4 large bolts per Valve cover on the III ?
    I’m a little over 1000km away from checking the valve clearance, so haven’t removed them.
    It looks like 2 plus I’m guessing there is one under the plug wire cover ?

    The store has 4 of each listed as the kit.

    Should be 3 large bolts on the V7 III, one under the plug wire cover for each cylinder.

    Yup, 3 large and 4 small on each side. Just did my valves on Saturday, so I know for sure.
