Bolt

I serviced the shifter linkage but the T50 bolt/screw was tough and may strip out next time. It's #12 on the parts diagram. The one that is just behind the shifter itself that holds the front of the cover. Does anyone know the thread size and pitch? trying to avoid $10 shipping for $3 part if I can get one local.
Thanks,Jim

Uh, one could always order the bolt through a dealer who will add it to their weekly order with no shipping charge.

Beacon,

I agree, especially since there is no need to rush back with the new bolt. I'd order it via dealer, and stash it with the stuff you use for servicing the bike.

You should also know that bolts have quality grades - you could make the right size and thread of bolt from plastic, but it would not do the job there. Common hardware bolts are often Grade 3. Better bolts are Grade 8, and maybe up to Grade 12. The yield-strength of the steel used in better bolts (not the bolt, but the steel type) is astounding. I have no idea how the Japanese bolt standards go.

An unknown bolt that fits exactly still may not do the intended job. Just a thought. That said,

https://www.anywho.com

(the real Internet Yellow Pages, not a wannabe) can find serious bolt dealers locally. Click the "business" tab and use the heading -

Nuts and Bolts

- Give that page a local ZIP code, and it will Sort the results by distance from you. HTH.

Thanks for replies. We have a local company called the "nutty company " that specializes in fastners which probably has it. If not off to the dealer .

You cannot always decode the special fasteners..... most others you can.
I believe torque on the T50 is 35 ft. lbs.

Hated that bolt the first day i took it out because the torx opening depth is not deep enough. Impossible to not hurt it, and wondered if i was even going to be able to get it out !
Thought about replacing it with a stainless button hex head cap screw like this one, but they are sold in packs of 10.

My local Fastenal store may get a visit soon. Maybe they will sell me just one - thanks for reminding me OP !!

Are we sure the pitch is 1.25 ?

Make sure your Torx bit is square on the bottom. Many of the cheaper bits are slightly rounded on the bottom and will not allow full engagement.

Of course, provided one has a dealership nearby. Rumor has it the one closest to me (still 45 mins away) has closed.

This is the kind of thing I wold hold off on for now and tack onto a tire order from a distributor. Free shipping then.
