What are the front brake caliper mounting bolt dimensions,
Specifically bolt size, thread pitch, length of thread, shoulder length?
I am without a garage work area at this time. I would like to replace these OEM button torx head bolts with S/S hex or allen but need the dimensions to order.
Thanks

Thanks, however I am in Jalisco, Mexico so I need to pick something up at the bolt store here. Guess I will have to try to remove one to take it in. Problem is tool access like an impact driver to free it up.

Don’t be tempted to NOT use the impact. The risk of snapping a bolt is no longer something I’m willing to take anymore, after ruining a perfectly good 650 rim a few years ago.

I brought T50 with me from the states, harbor freight. Used it twice but the hardness was so poor it twisted like a pretzel. We have an Autozone nearby so maybe I can find a good socket there without having to buy a kit. Not common here for mechanics to keep Torx tools. Most do not even have metric tools,
I am on the hunt today for a new T50

Found a mechanic with a Craftsman Torx50. Popped right off .. ezy pzy. Local bolt store had the 10mm fine bolts with a big fat 17mm hex head. 8.8 hardness. Now ready for fresh fork oil.
