After I swapped to 6.9's on my 2009 Renegade I bought the Ski-Doo 860200525 rivets to reinstall my ski pulls.
What a joke those things are trying to install without whatever tool they have at the factory!
So one of the many things we do here is Industrial Fastener supply. I ordered up a few samples of the lengths I needed in lightweight aluminum and voila - an idea was formed.
These are available for $12.00 with free shipping in my eBay store or $10.00 to any fellow DooTalk members :)

No offense but we can go to any hardware store and buy 4 bolts and 4 nuts for a buck or two.

You won't buy aluminum for a buck or 2. ;)

Aluminum is lighter and won't corrode like the standard $2.00 hardware bolts.

Titanium kits

Even lighter

That's what I've been using for a few years meow.

Anything is better than the stock ones that rust after 1 ride.

And anyone that replaces hoops and puts those rivets back in is kwazy

We're talking less than a pound of weight difference between these and stainless?

 

Anyway, $10 for aluminum is a good deal.    Stainless and Aluminum are about the same price at our local hardware store and this "kit" would cost around $14.

I bought some steel bolts at the hardware store and they were more than $2.  Anyway, nice kit.  I ended up scrapping my steel hardware store parts and went with the Doo kit (obviously before this kit came out).  I would have kept the bolts if they were nice and light!

Try a store that sells nothing but fasteners. Northern states supply or fastenal. I buy boxes of bolts for the price of this kit. Yes I can get aluminum cheap also.

I'm not going to price out the entire kit; however, if you look at Fastenal's site the longer bolts are around $2/ea wholesale.  Point being...Chad has put together a great kit at a very competitive price.  If you don't want to buy it feel free to determine the correct bolt sizes and source them yourself.

Titanium is not lighter than aluminum.
