Hi,
Anyone knows where can I find the size of the front brake caliper bolts?

I don't have access to the bike right now but would like to replace mine because they're rusty.

Basically I found this but dimensions not mentioned and I might want to find a stainless steel alternative

Thanks

Digging an old one up from the deep here @KTMasean !

Did you ever replace your (2) M8 x 60 x 1mm pitch front brake Caliper Bolts with Titanium versions ?

**After taking the Caliper off at the weekend. I realised how sad the standard bolts looked amongst all the Ti and Stainless i already have.
Not easy to get hold of a fine thread / 1mm pitch it seems. Let alone a Titanium version. A fairly quick search last night has me a pair of
good quality (NOT cheap Chinese.......) A2 Stainless versions on the way. But these two holding on a brake Caliper deserve and probably
require Titanium more than most...........

Sorry I haven't yet.
Will contact Rick at Race Specs (FB) if he can supply these.
Will keep you posted

Last post in above link was 2017 and ‘seller’ was “running out fast”. Also mentions 70mm. Mine are 60mm long. Shame. But thanks !
Did you double check yours are 60mm? With the larger 320mm rotor on 2nd gen bikes, I would have assumed longer but it does look like a shorter spacer is used too, so perhaps not.

“Measure 38 times - order once” 😂🤣 is how the saying goes isn’t it ??

Yes. I double checked. Thanks for double checking me though…..😉

***Specs don’t mention flange diameter either.
Will have to check on that (In terms of if it will fit) - if it’s in stock ‘over here’ - and it’s my only / an option…..
