Tank bolt size

Hey everyoneóI lost the that hold the rear of the SG tank on. I think itís the same across XS models. Partzilla has them but shipping is 3 times the price of the bolt. 8mm maybe? I canít check as Iím not in the same county as the bike right now.

Thx

Should be 1.25 thread pitch. A front fender bolt would be the same pitch and size, maybe a bit longer.

Thanks gents. Hoping I can get it back on the road this fall, but family issues might prevent it. Venturer tank, no octy proving a bit harder than I had anticipated.
