Default Harmonic Balancer Bolt

I'm in the middle of replacing my water pump and timing chain. I've read that some harmonic balancer bolts are torque to yield and cannot be reused.

Is this the case for the 3.0 Vulcan?

I cannot seem to find a replacement one anywhere so I'm thinking it is OK to reuse.

Thanks in advance for enlightening me.-M5

Well I have reused several, several times without issue. Head bolts? don't take the chance. Harmonic balancer bolt? just use the thing.
