I've just tried to mount my radial calipers with some titanium bolts.
But I couldn't turn the bolts in very smooth.
Just to be sure this is not caused by some old loctite I want to clean the thread in the forkbottoms with a tap.
Is the thread in these forkbottoms M10 or is it an other size?

That was the problem.
The titanium bolt I've tried was M10 x 1.5 (normal thread)
Ducati uses M10 x 1.25, fine thread.
I've now ordered the Pro-Bolt titanium caliper bolt kit.
Just to be sure I have the right thread, length an strength.

That's the one. I ordered 10mm x 1.25mm x 55mm for my radials as I'm using 320mm discs. If you are using the 330mm discs then you need 10mm x 1.25mm x 60mm plus the 5mm spacers (if you don't already have them) to move the calipers outward.

I'm using just like you the 320mm discs so I don't need more length.
I'm not sure what length I've ordered, I've just ordered the bolts compatible with the 1098 fork ;)

Do you know the torque settings of these bolts?

Don't forget to use anti-seize on the threads.

Use OEM torque settings for Ti bolts.
