    Just thought I would share with you a little upgrade on my 2012 Speedmaster. I have replaced the standard bolts with new stainless dome head bolts from Pro-Bolt Ltd. Pictures attached, and if you are interested in doing it here are the sizes you will need.

    2 x M8 20mm
    2 x M10 25mm
    2 x M8 30mm
    2 x M8 25mm

    All at 1.25mm pitch

    Cheers

    Looking good Tel but do you mind if I ask what they cost you from Pro-Bolt?

    I buy similar dome head stainless fasteners from Toolstation. They are excellent quality & dirt cheap.
    A good example is 50 x M8 x 20mm with a 1.25mm thread pitch for £5.71 inc vat (only 11.42p each)
    https://www.toolstation.com/search?q=M8 x 20mm
    Bear them in mind for any future fastener replacement jobs. If there isn't a branch near you? They offer free postage on any order over £10.

    Yeah not cheap bud, about £30 for the eight bolts but the quality and dome style really goes well imho, i got some button head bolts but they weren't anyway near the quality of these.

    I have a Canberry 2012 speedmaster. Can I ask what seat you have? Is that a chrome rail on the fender?

    Hi Nemo
    I got the seat from ebay (link below)
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/maverick_moto?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2754
    but then I had it padded out a little bit more and recovered locally.

    The chrome rack I got from fast eddy sports.

    Picture attached shows the seat before extra padding etc and a better view of the rack for you. hope this helps !

    Thanks! I really like the look with the single seat & rack. These are the first mods to get done before Spring. Can I ask if that's the stock fender?

    Cool, my reflector is in the chrome, yours is on the fender. I appreciate all the info from another 2012 speedmaster owner.
