So i kinda feel dumb asking this.
But i seem to have lost the bolt going from back of tank to under the seat, also the 3 bolts at the front of tank, and i need to know what size the 3 are.

Ps. Im a canadian, i misplaced the square bolt for carb clamp aswell and i couldnt find one anywhere..

flockin Canadians! :)

There's only 1 at the front of a tank and its a 6mm x 20-25mm, the other 2 will be for the front cowling/mirror support bracket? there 6mm x 25mm too.

There's such a thing called a thread pitch gauge, vernier gauge and ruler to measure bolts!

the one on the front is the same width as half the other bolts on the bike......... eg, bolts that hold speedo, heel guards, fairings......

a tap is used to change/make the thread in a hole.

M6 x 1mm tap ( taper, intermediate or plug/bottoming tap.)

a die is used to change/make the thread in a bolt.

Use M6 x 1mm die

Snapped a bolt into the hole where you bolt the top bolt of the tank.
Seeing what ideas to get it out or re-tap it.

The snap is not sticking out or we would've used vice grips
