    Side stand bolts

    One of my side stand bolts has sheared off and the other one was bent; I’ve managed to get them both out and the female threads on the bike look fine; does anyone have 2 original bolts? They seem a really finer thread to any similar bolts I have so I don’t want to force anything in there that may cause damage….anyone had this problem before, and if so, specifically what do I need? I suppose I could just go to a ironmongery merchant with the bent bolt and see what they have to match
     but any other suggestions? Can longer bolts go on? I assume so.

    Not had that problem, but from this
    https://www.fowlersparts.co.uk/parts/6592534/vfr1200x/stand
    they appear to be M10 x 35mm

    M10 has two thread pitches, the chances are these are fine thread - should be able to get them from ebay, or bite the bullet and buy from Honda.
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162526604245 may work for you. I'd avoid stainless in this application.

    Thank you very much for this. I am going to try a couple of places I know locally today and if I get no joy, I know I can get them via the links. Very much appreciated, and good advice re not going stainless; I may use some threadlock on the new bolts though just for added peace of mind.
