Bolt Question for a Newbie?

Recommended Posts

Hello TT,

I have a rookie question? The bolt that conects my clutch lever to the perch has fallen off, How I dont really now. My question is do I have to go get a OEM bolt from the dealer or can I go to the hardware store and buy a metric bolt with fine threads to replace it. Is this a special thread or can I just put a hardware metric fine thread bolt in its place?

Thanks sorry for the rookie question,

Dirtybird

Welcome to TT.

I'm not sure but I think it is a 6mm x 1.00 and I would use a grade 9.8 or higher bolt, you should be able to get one from most hardware stores and use a drop of blue loctite on the threads

The bolt is application specific.

You can get away by replacing it with a 6x1.00x25mm and a nylstop (nylon collar) nut if you need to use the bike

but I would order the right bolt and nut from your dealer.

The OEM bolt has a bigger diameter and no thread in its mid-section to allow the lever to function properly.

Go tothe parts fiche and check it out.

Price at your local dealer will me higher than the online price.
