6mm x 30mm long with a 1.0 thread pitch, pick up a grade 10.9 bolt and it will have the flange built in. Local hardware store should have plenty.

Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

I picked this chart up off another site. It comes in quite handy for those pesky lost bolts.

That's even easier than digging through old posts here, trying to remember where the info was..

I now have a complete personal folder with all the procedures, mods, Maintenance, Specs, and about anything you can think of in the tool box. Everything I found was right here on the internet...all the pages are in clear sleeves, can add as I go.
