Seeking M8x60DIN6912 hex socket screw for hand guards

So installing the factory accessory hand guards on my 2013 Versys, I bunged up the hex head on the socket screw that holds the end of the guard frame to the bar end weight. I don't mind paying for a replacement, but anyone have a source that lets me order just one or two of these? I dropped an e-mail to Kawasaki as well. I'm in the U.S. The instructions list this as M8x60DIN6912 hex socket screw for hand guards. They also say to check for missing hardware, but there is no indication what to do if I have any! (To be clear, this isn't missing, I effed it up!) Guess I don't know my own strength, as Bullwinkle used to say.

It is an M8-1.25 x 60mm socket cap.
product #6569. 42 cents each.

Home Depot should carry these as well.

Those are Class 12.9 steel black oil finish... It needs to be at least made of Stainless Steel.

$0.95 each: https://www.boltdepot.com/Product-De...x?product=6442

If you have a Home Depot, they have an unusually large selection.

My OEM bolts are not stainless, and have a black finish on the head only. But, invader is, of couse, correct. Stainless steel is much better.

Our Home Depot actually doesn't have a huge selection of hex head metrics.

My oem bolts are actually different sizes. 55mm on the right, and 60mm on the left.
