Bolts

I am in need of water pump housing bolts and the drain plug bolt. My manly strength broke two bolts while putting the cover back on and installing the drain bolt.

Ah yes.... German torque (gutenteit).

Not sure what you're asking for here, but....

1) There are numerous online purveyors of OEM motorcycle parts. Google is your friend. Be prepared to pay stupid-high shipping charges if you don't buy enough stuff. Check in-stock status carefully... it can be tricky.

2) Kawasaki has a dealer network that stocks OEM parts for your bike.

3) There's this truly amazing invention called a "torque wrench." Widely available at local home improvement stores as well as online. Check it out.

PS: The maintenance manual has torque specs for every nut and bolt on the bike. Also available at your local Kawasaki dealer. They'd be happy to serve you.

Maintenance manuals and torque wrenches cost money. I leave it to you to determine whether the cost in time, inconvenience and potential further damage to the bike (e.g. stripped holes) offsets the cost of doing it right in the first place.

I was looking to see if any had any sitting in a box in the garage. my dealer shut down. the torque required for those parts are super low, I have a torque wrench, but doesn't go that low. The added water on the bolts added a little "lube" causing less friction..

also no need to spend money with this:

I have two torque wrenches. The small one goes from 25-250 in-lbs (about 2.1-21 ft-lbs). The other goes from 20-100 ft. lbs. Both are 3/8" drive, so I don't have to carry additional sockets.

Have yet to find a fastener on any bike that doesn't fall within this range.

Even less with coupons available here: http://www.hfqpdb.com
Sometimes, they have 1-day specials with 25% off coupons and you can get torque-wrenches for $15!!!

I test their calibrations yearly and replace them if they’re more than +/-15% off. So far, I’ve only had to take one back for replacement in past 10-yrs.

closest harbor freight is an hour away, and a smaller torque wrench hasn't been a priority. I am still buying parts to fix the bike from the crash.

I'm sure I've still got those bolts on a used engine or two. Do you still need these?

I might still have a box full of bolts from taking apart my EX500 motor. I'm sure the cover bolts were in there. If you still need this, I will go into the -30° garage to take a look.
