Rear Wave Rotor for XR650R Problem

I bought a Galfer wave rotor for the rear of my XR650R and it didn't come with any hardware. When I try to use the stock bolts, they are too small for the hole diameter. I checked fastener sites like McMaster-Carr and I can't find anything that would work. Has anyone else used one of these before? Did I just get the wrong one, because the ID of the rotor is correct, but the OD looks a bit small when you compare it to the stock one.

Sounds like you might have a rotor for the 650l.

Are the bolt holes in the rotor counter sunk or recessed?

Yes they are recessed. Looking at Galfer's catalog it looks like they don't even sell a rear rotor for the XR650R. Does anyone have a recommendation for one?

Braking? Not sure if they make one for it though.

It is going to be a hard rear rotor to find because they run such a huge rotor.

      I have this issue several times and cannot seem to figure it out. The four clutch spring bolts are the weakest bolts I have ever come across. I am not sure what the torque specs are, have the shop manual, have searched online and I can only guess it's around 4 ft/lbs. I have been told 8 and they seem to break every time around 7.
      What is the proper torque for these bolts?
      Should I find stronger bolts? I would still stick to the proper torque, but feel as if these things are butter.

      Prior to reassembling the case, I tested the shifting and it seems the center fork attached to the shaft seems to stick at the steepest section of the drum. I have cleaned and tested all forks and surfaces for smooth movement, tried it with silicone and oil. With very little help, it seems to shift ok, but without the help, it binds.
      Can I assume that once it is together the oil lines are attached and oil is added to the case, the binding will stop? I have tested every scenario short of assembling the entire motor.
      Should I be able to successfully test the shifting with the case apart?
