What size are the bolts on the rear rack?

I'm tryinng to mount yet another pistol case to the rear rack of the KLR but don't know the bolt size (diameter and pitch). I'm talking about the 6 bolts on top that hold the black surface down.
4 8mm hex type and 2 allen/socket type.

Length isn't important, just size and thread pitch.

Thanks.

Sometimes I think I should just buy a soft tail bag and skip all the headaches.

Size for rear rack thread is M6 Thread......

You can get several different lengths in metric sizes, such as

M6 X 16

M6 X 20

M6 X 25

M6 X 30

M6 is the thread and pitch while the variable 16 - 30 as illustrated is the length in millimeters.

Specialty bolt suppliers can get you anything you want, but the average Ace Hardware, Lowes, Home Depot can accomodate some sizes.

Hope it helps.
