Question Header Nuts: Anything special about them?

Hey Guys.

I have to replace my Header Nuts.
Quick Question:

Anything special about OEM?
ie. certain metal to withstands vibration, corrosion etc?
T3350301 http://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts/...50301/b1568859
Part 26 in image below.

Or can I use any nut that fits from Home Depot?
M8x1.25 Zinc plated steel etc

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-...3918/204281763

I will be using anti-seize.
Would you recommend a washer?

for a 2006 Triumph Daytona.

Thanks!
Chris

They are lock nuts, meaning crushed slightly so they are out of round. And most definitely grade 8 or even grade 10.

Personally I would just order the OEM nuts as they are reasonably priced. And I wouldn't use anti seize that stuff is crap for things that get hot, it also changes the torque spec.

Yah, they're like a buck a piece, just not sure if they'll arrive in time...

Have a dealer near by? They should be able to get it quicker then bikebandit could.

Heh, Yah. My local dealer is NY Duc/Triumph on 6th ave in Soho.
They have a poor reputation, and in my experience justifiably so...

Before posting I actually called them.
The guy I spoke with actually recommended that I just get some from HD, suggesting a $6 order is more trouble than its worth for them.

I'm not too fussed about it. I already ordered some from BB, itll be a couple weeks before they arrive.
Since I was planning to do the work this long weekend, so I'll use HD nuts anyway.
When I'm feeling motivated I'll swap them out for OEM after they arrive.
