919 Headlight bolts

Can anyone tell me where I put them after installing my windshield 2 years ago?
If not, does anyone have a spare set, or know of where I can order them? I have all stock takeoffs in the same cabinet, but no bolts. I'm an idiot, an idiot that won't be riding for a few days.

Hardware store is your friend. I got mine at ace. Bring in one of the windshield bolts and get a shorter one. They were like $1 each for stainless Allen head bolts.

Home Depot or Lowes may carry them, if they don't they should have one of those thread gauge plates in there. Figure out the thread or look in a service manual if they have the thread and length. Then go to Mcmaster-carr and order a couple: McMaster-Carr

As soon as you buy a new set you'll find the stock ones!
