Searched, but didn't find anything relevant to the bolts.

In the process of swapping over the crank sensor trigger wheel to my BHJ, it seems I've lost/misplaced/etc one of the little E5 bolts on the back. Would I be better off finding a member to send me a spare, or could I locally source 4 similar bolts of the same size/thread and just replace all 4 of them (just to keep them matching).

Figured I'd post this for any one looking in the future...

I went to Lowe's last night and scoured the hardware aisle for a good half hour. The bolts are M5x.8...roughly 14mm length. Problem is, in all their selection, Lowe's only has 12mm and 16mm lengths. I bought a few packs of each to experiment (they were only 80 cents each). The 16's felt a little too long, so I ended up going with the 12mm with a small dab of blue Loctite on the end. Figuring it should be just fine that way.

It will be good. I installed my bolts then removed them looking for marks that they bottomed out. I found one, so i cut about an eight inch off. They are fine.As you I also loctited them.
