Another shifter bolt bites the dust. Need size of bolt.

So, I was riding down the highway, downshifted and all of a sudden I'm dragging my shifter. I managed to find the bolt but the threads at the start of the bolt are boogered up enough that I can't get it to thread in.

So, does anyone know the dimensions so I can run up to Lowe's and grab a replacement. Anything else I need to know?

Thanks!

what bike?

I haven't been around this site much over the past couple of years but there used to be a lot of 919s. If that's the case, my manual has all of the clutch/gearshift linkage bolts as either 6 or 8 mm thread diameter except for the clutch center lock nut (22)

I would just hit lowe's and get a few across the probable range of what you'll need. the ones you don't use, you'll probably end up using for something else.

Nice!

at one point, you used to be able to find the entire shop manual on this site relatively easily.

Granted, nakeds have gone to another level over the years, but my 9er is still as good a daily driver as I could ever ask for.

Sounds like what you really need is some loctite!

Some blue loctight on it will stop it from coming undone.
