ARP Rod Bolts For Triumph & BSA Motorcycles[/color]

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]


If your rebuilding your vintage Triumph, or classic BSA motorcycle, insist on using ARP rod bolts. Rod bolts play a crucial factor and it's not something you want to fail. ARP rod bolts are made here in the USA and in my honest opinion, ARP rod bolts are far superior over the original factory rod bolts. So if your rebuilding that precious engine of yours, keep ARP rod bolts in mind or purchase a set today.


[color:#FF0000]Want To Purchase A Set?

We stock ARP rod bolts for vintage triumph motorcycles. We also carry them for classic BSA motorcycles. Some include the Triumph T120, TR6, 6T, T110, BSA A65, A50, A10, and much more.

spend the extra money on a rod bolt stretch gauge, too. the ARP unit is expensive, but others are available.

The ARP stretch gauge is expensive but it's also one of the nicest on the market. JEGS makes a nice affordable stretch gauge that works good.

It seems more than a small oversight ,
Considering how important Arp claims , Arp lube is ... in obtaining reliable torques ,
That they dont include at least a 'teaser' sample amount ,

Pulled from the official ARP website.

Do I need lube on my bolts or studs?

We recommend using ARP Ultra-torque lube to ensure an even, accurate clamp load and to prevent thread galling. This is particularly important for stainless steel Fasteners. The lube should be used under the head of the bolt or the bearing surface of the nut and on the threads, unless a thread sealer is used.

Do I have to use Ultra-torque?

We spent two years developing ARP Ultra-torque and we have come up with what we believe to be the ultimate fastener lubricant. All of our torque values are based on using Ultra-torque. We do not provide torque values for use with any other fastener assembly lubricant (such as motor oil, moly lube, etc.) Use these other lubes at your own risk, as their use may lead to a part or engine failure, for which we are not responsible.
Do the threads of the bolts or studs going into the blo

...in their wpage specify ONLY for 650 Bonnie; so what s the difference with the T140 ones? the thread? Those bolts do not show in their kits...
Also, I emailed them due to that and the torque specs that are intended for the longer (the only kit that appears) bolts; and they responded in an evasive, elusive way, and repeating the use of those 32 pounds.
I do not see why not to use these arp bolts and try to obtain that 22 pounds intended by the factory.
If they not stretch what s the problem? they do not break...

ARP rod bolts should be torqued to what they recommend. Yes, thread pitch, material, and diameter will have an effect on the torque rating. A factory workshop Manual would be irrelevant in this case in regards to the torque rating. ARP only has the 650 types on there site. They do not have the BSA rod bolts or the Triumph T140 rod bolts on there site. I have all 3 types on my site. You can find the diameter, thread pitch, torque rating, etc

...well, in fact I bought you the ones for the T140 couple of months ago with the Hillbilly bike address there in Ontario NY.
Do you say that no matter that they are different thread and shorter¿? than the T120s, still I should use the SAME torque that those.

ARP states that the torque rating is 32 ft lbs. I can only go by what ARP recommends as they are the manufacture
