990 Adventure Swingarm Spool Bolt Size?

Anyone know what the swingarm spool bolt size is for the 990 Adventure? I picked up a set of 10mm Vortex spools and they don't want to thread.

10 x 1.5. I'll bet the Vortex spools came with 1.25 thread bolts.

speaking of this, what's the best brand to fit that actually fits from the factory? I did similar and got the 10mm ones but had to replace the bolt with the correct pitch, but have since bent one of them. :)

does R&G make a set? Pit Bull? KTM? I just got some cheapies from somewhere but they are junk.

Bingo! I picked up a couple of 1.50's at ACE and they work.

Great question. To avoid the bending problem I might just pop ACE hardware specials in and out when I need to put it on the stand.
