Plan to go to the hardware store tomorrow, would appreciate it if someone could let me know the specs for the bolts.

They are part No. 32 in the fiche shown at this link.

Thanks.
I think they are 8mm x 30mm. Not sure of the pitch, though 1.25 seems pretty common. I say "I think" because they are the only 4 matching bolts I have in the box of take-offs.

Anybody else?

Thanks that helps a lot. The pitch should be the same as the bolts I removed from the grab handles when I removed the OEM pannier mounts.

Probably doesn't matter but are they threaded the entire length or just partially?

The ones I have are threaded the entire length. Each bolt also had a flat washer on it.

Thanks, and that's with a hex head? Much appreciated.

These have an allen head. After further inspection and looking at parts fiches, I think the bolts I have are from the stock plastic engine guards, not the grab bars. I'll look around a little more later after the wife wakes up and I'm off of baby duty.

She's (the baby) starting to get mobile, so I can only leave her for about 30 seconds at a time. On the other hand, maybe it's time to introduce her to the garage...

I got a chance to throw a leg over an S10 yesterday. Fit like a glove (well, handlebar risers might be in order) but dealer had no demo bike for me to test.

I'll call around this week to other area dealers.
If you are going to demo one - bring your checkbook.

OK, I found the right bolts in a different box. I knew the other ones looked too small...

These are 10mm x 50mm with about 28mm threaded and an allen head that uses an 8mm key. I'm sure these are the right ones. They were in a box with spacers from the Jesse racks.

Good luck finding them. I always have to go to Fastenal and order stainless metric bolts.

Hey thanks a lot. Was hoping to find the spec online but so far no such luck.

This is the best fiche pic-wise. http://www.ronniesmailorder.com/fich...12&fveh=141266

Sounds like the right ones, thanks a lot for that info!

No shortage of metric bolts here in Japan so hopefully can find some tomorrow.

Service manual says it is M10 - torque it to 32Nm (23 ft-lb). It doesn't specify the stock length.

I know it is M10 - one of my bolt holes was buggered yesterday and I tapped it

Thanks very much, should be set with that and Anticyclone's info.

Edit: Found the bolts in stainless this AM at the local hardware store.

After reading through the thread, I felt compelled to go check my spokes...

The front was only slightly loose but what I found really odd was ALL the spokes on the driveshaft side of the rear wheel were loose to very loose. The opposing side were all a little loose - kinda like the front wheel.

I'm just closing in on 3000. I did my first oil change and was looking for other things to check. Glad I did!
