Swing Arm Slider Bolt Size?

Will be dropping the rear wheel next weekend for a tire swap and need to get a couple of bolts for the swing arm lift points, anyone know the size.

Thinking it is and M10, but is it 1.0, 1.25 or 1.5?

Tried to find a bolt to match in my "random bolt" collection, but couldn't get one to thread, also checked the service manual but couldn't find the spec.

Thanks in advance,

I use some bolts from a Honda rebel for mine and the threads at a 10*1.5mm


But I'd take the bike there and test them to make sure

What size they are depends on which model year your Versys is.

The "1.25" is an important part of the statement

They are rather rare of the shelf, at least in the M10 size
Found mine at a Kubota tractor dealer ...
