I have the bygdawg tipover bars.
They have protected my bike very well, in tipovers.
Are the GL1800 bars as long?

Go out and measure yours and tell how long they are for comparison. From what I can see the GW bars are as long. After all, the do have to protect the saddlebags on Goldwings which aren't any narrower than the ST's. A measurement please.

The replacement bolts are 8 mm x 40 mm and are different than stock because the stock ones fit down in a recessed hole while the new ones tighten down against the base of the tip over bars. I am sorry I don't recall the pitch 100% but I am 90% sure the pitch is 1.25. I bought them at a good hardware store with a large selection of metric fasteners.

You're going to want to use high strength fasteners for the tip-over bars, too. There are several grades you can get, but the lower grades will snap the moment they're actually required (during a tipover). If you're unsure, ask at the hardware store - the good one's will have people who can assist, and get you the right screw, pitch, strength and length, and even have it in chrome.

Are you sure those are a 8mm bolt?
I thought those were 10xwhatever lengthX1.50.
The 1.50 makes them a specialty bolt and not all that easy to find if your looking for stainless.

And before the bitch begins 1.50 is used on frame bolts because of it's holding power.

Metric bolts will be marked:
8.8 Carbon steel 800-830 tensile strength
10.9 Alloy steel 1040 tensile strength
12.9 Alloy steel 1220 tensile strength
A-2 Stainless 500~700 tensile strength

About everything you ever wanted to know about fasteners including a boatload of printable stuff can be had here:

I seem to recall when we were hunting stainless bolts for the Bydawg bars the 1.50 made them hard to find and about tripled the cost.

Still looking for someone who sells and ships the GL1800 tip-over bars to Australia at a reasonable rate. Unfortunately most charge so much it all but doubles the cost. Cheaper guys charge more for postage and vice versa. Really want some so will keep checking around to see if I can buy some and get them shipped below $100.

No, they are 8 mm. I kept the stock ones and measured one last night before posting. I just did not have a tap to verify the pitch but like I said I am 90% sure it is 1.25.

I did even think about using stainless and used grade 8 carbon steel. 18-8 SS brings it's own set of problems with galling and is usually 20 to 25% weaker than carbon steel in same size. I had sailboats for 40 years and used variants of 304 and 316 (18-8) SS for various applications above and below the waterline. Honda usually uses carbon steel for frame fasteners don't they?

We are talking about the two bolts that hold the footpeg mount bracket to the rear frame down tube?

The 03 model has 10mm X 1.25. I just checked the stock bolts out of mine.
The parts catalog for the 07 calls for 10x23.

Maybe it was the 1.25 that made them expensive because 1.50 is the common thread pitch once you get to 10mm.


As far as the stainless anti-seize tales care of galling.
My thinking on the strength was these are used for the gas station tip over, I had just had one when they first came out.
Crashing it at speed was going to put a serious hit on the bar and probably bend it into the bag but was it going to bend the rear frame tube as well.
As it turns out the ST slides fairly well supported by the front and rear set of bars.
We've had several reports of someone testing the bars at speed with no damage reports to the frame down tubes.
I like to think I learned how to stop tipping mine over, I have not done it in a while.
