Whatever your insurance company specify. Apart from the hassle of losing an engine, they'll be the ones calling the shots when you claim.

Nothing really to sieze up or rust and are simple to fit and remove ( with the adaptor ) Nothing really stops a determined scummer but at least your insurance shouldn't be void.
The prop lock is handy if you've got a shiny expensive stainles one a =s well

Hi, they arrived in the uk within a week but Parcel force took almost as long to get them out of customs and to scotland.

Overall it worked out cheaper than buying all the items we wanted in the UK
they also have a download of the suzuki catalogue which was worth having

Not sure about the original bolts.

If the bolts are the original manufacturers std .... and you pick the correct one then they do . I think you can double check the thread size and pitch from the engine manufacturer or rigger.
Usually between 1 & 2 weeks for most things from the States. USPS ( not UPS) now do a std "flat rate" pacjake delivery for small items which is very reasonable. Ask the supplier ( if going stateside) if they will ship via USPS

Check Ebay USA for the Mcguard locks-I got one for my Yam from there and it came to a shade under 20 including shipping.
