Zinc-coated bolts are the perfect solution for your vintage Kawasaki restoration project. The zinc coating protects the steel bolts and typically ensures years of rust-free service. The cost savings of zinc over stainless steel are enough to make them attractive, but sometimes they are the only way to go. Stainless steel sometimes gets very hot when being torqued down.
In certain situations, the threads on bolt and bracket can weld together, making removal a challenge. With zing-coated steel, your vintage Japanese motorcycle’s components will always be easily replaceable. When re-assembling your vintage Kawasaki, consider the mating materials and ask yourself is stainless steel is worth the cost. Often, zinc-coated motorcycle fasteners (bolts) are all you need to do the job right.
