I want to share a tip that has saved me many trips to the hardware store, as well as some money. On Ebay look for bundles of nuts and bolts taken from motorcycles that have been disassembled as a result of the bike being totaled or involved in an accident. The price varies depending on what is included. An example is found on this link:


I just finished the installation of 2 Givi side cases mounted on JFC brackets. The brackets came without any screws and I was able to find original screws and nuts on the bundles I have bought in the past, and that allowed me to finish the installation without any trip to the hardware store.

Good tip, but now I can't shake the mental image of, "Yeah, Dave rode off last night down the blacktop into the woods. Didn't come back, so the next day we went looking for him and this pile of nuts and bolts was all we found. Oh, yeah, a foot peg, too."
