Well nuts

http://www.desmoparts.com/products/p...tm/m5-wellnuts

i come across this site purely for the need of some new well nuts, as i know we probably all do from time to time. the prices are reasonable and they have discounts for over 500 in a purchase...anyone feeling generous? lol

I hate wellnuts, dern things always spin on me. Replaced all the ones on my bike with J-nuts even on the windshield.

I like well nuts myself. To many years of working around fiberglass I guess. Just a dot of superglue well hold them from spinning. J nuts are great and hold a load better if you have got the space.

Stew -

Do you folks have big home improvement stores like Lowe's in Canada? I found well nuts there in the goodie drawers.

They were not metric, since Merkuns can't do metric, but I'd bet they would be in Canada - you people being able to deal with base ten measurement systems and all...

If you drill the holes slightly undersize, then thread the bolt in a couple of turns from the inside, spit on the whole thing - yah, saliva - you can yank it thru and it'll be quite tight and won't spin. If you use silicone or some such for a lube, it may give future problems. Saliva dries out. 'Course if'n it gets corrosion on it at some point you'll have fun with it, but you will with any bolt. They drill out pretty easy, so for me it hasn't been a problem.
