Muffler Bolts Fell off

muffler bolts from flange where it mates up to the head fell off. Does anyone know the size nuts so I can get new ones. Is there any place I can get nuts that will lock into place and not fall off? I have seen in four wheel drive mags where they have locking nuts for headers, and if so, does anyone know where I can get them for a 2007 KLR??? This sucks.....

Thanks

Just checked on my bike and that looks like a pretty unique nut with integral washer but I'm sure a regular nut and lockwasher would work. I'm working from memory here, but I think Loctite and PermaTex make a high heat thread locker.

It's in the muffler schematic here:

I just reread your post and you say "...bolts fell off...."? Did the entire stud come out?

update......... I went to shop did not have it was told it was an 8mm nut. Went to Northern Tools and got a bag of 5- 8mm and 10- lock washers total cost $2.18. Went and got HIGHTEMP locktight at Napa for $4.27. Grand total in fix $6.46. Plus $10.00 in gas for having to drive car, which sucks!!! Love riding year round.
