Black bolts

What's everybody doing for black bolts instead of chrome? I tried painting them but the paint just comes off

I Powdercoat my big bolts. Just be careful using the wrench. Small screws, I would just spray paint.

I plan to get Hot toppers in black to accent some areas on my bike, but I'm going to subscribe to see what others are doing.

How do you know what size bolt you need if you are going to buy new ones? Does Harley have some kind of chart or something that gives bolt sizes

HD doesnt really have a chart, their bolts have a part number, but if you use a parts manual to find the bolt pn#, and look in the back of the manual, it tells you the size, threads per inch and what type of head and grade usually an 8. I found that if I bead blasted the bolt heads and spray painted them, and use either a heat gun or one of the high output halogen lights shining on it for 10-15 mins the paint seems to cure harder. Than wait overnight to install them.

I bought some black bolts from a bolt and tool company for Debbie's bike,... They rusted inside the hex placement, it's ugly. Big disappointment! I guess it is a matter of getting the right coating?!?

I agree, you would need to find powder coated or black anodized bolts so they wont rust. I guess you could try a clear spray paint over a cleaned bolt. Not sure how long it would last though.
