    Would A2 grade Stainless Steel be of sufficient strength to be used as replacement mounting bolts?

    Most are plated mild steel but I know for example street triple non-R uses a stainless bolt as I got some to trim and use on my Msx.

    they won't be mild steel, they will be high tensile, an A2-70 is a bit weaker than an 8.8 high tensile , A4-80s are better if you can get them, but I've never had any issues, and the bolts aren't generally that heavily loaded on a road bike.
