Bolt sizes

I am now the proud owner of a 2009 VT750 C2.

Mine came with a sissy bar and bolt-on saddlebags, which long term I’d like to remove. Unfortunately, it didn’t come with the stock bolts. Anyone know what size they are?

I’m British, btw, so if we could work in metric sizes that’d be very helpful.

Pic of the bike for those who are interested!

Here is a wrench cross reference chart from the TriumphRat forums; just an fyi:

Also you should be able to find a metric thread-pitch gauge.

According to the OEM Parts should be 10mm x 40mm, if those are the ones you mean.

Looks like the original bolts were 10 mm x 40 mm. Don't forget the washers.

Bolts '9' and washers '11':

@AmsterDan, BEAT ME TO IT.



@Thumper1990, I was going to give you a bad time about bolt sizes.
I worked on British cars in 1970 and learned about the Whitworth and British Standard systems, then metric. But Britain had the SAE system for a while also. You guys would have to have 4 sets of tools to get by .

Be advised that there are also BA threads, British Association, as shown at the website that offers British fasteners of all kinds:

Thank you all for the info! Sorry it took me so long to reply. One of those weeks, though I’m happy to say I spent most of yesterday tooling about on the shadow.

So that’s M10x40 for the standard bolts, then. Thanks all for your help.
