Stripped Clutch Switch Screws

I stripped one of the screws (and lost the other) trying to remove my clutch switch (part# 27010-1094)

Can someone please tell me what the screw size is so I can buy new ones?

I highly doubt you stripped the thread off a steel screw in an aluminium housing, more likely the thread in the housing is stripped. I hope I'm wrong.

Whoever assembled that part must have used the highest grade Loctite. If it's a steel screw, they must have used the most pliable steel they could find. It didn't take any effort on my part to strip out the head.

useing the wrong tool will do that (thats why most my stuff is that way, im the WRONG tool )
you could take a cut off wheel and turn the stripped screw in to a standard screw then just use a flathead in it (just not mine)
onewizard likes this.

yes im a guy.

There's JIS (Japanese), and there's also Phillips (USA) like yours, and yet different again is POZI (British)...

If I used that "junk" I'd have to use the dremel again to get it to work right like the tool used to adjust the rear shock. *eye roll with butter*
