Default Air box cover screws

Does anyone know what size the screws used to keep the air box lid on a pointy are?

Mine are a little worse for wear after 12 years and 40k miles so would like to replace them before I end up rounding one off or they rust up but don't fancy paying Suzuki prices of a couple of quid per screw.

On my Curvy 1999 they are number 5,

Choose your model,

http://www.cmsnl.com/suzuki-sv650_model14123/

and that should help Tom but I would try and source them off Ebay or similar as CMSL postage is way too high IMHO

These might work but of course not sure of the thread,

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FLANGED-BU...I1eFb5TErWXjRg

Worth a punt for 1.59

PS
I keep the parts-fiche for my model bookmarked as a cross reference to manuals etc

I've found the part number but it's not helped me narrow down any non OEM replacements unfortunately and for a set of OEM ones I'm looking at the best part of 10 which I'm not prepared to pay for a couple of Suzuki cheese grade screws

The ones on my pointy seem strange in that from a quick look they do look like screws rather than any sort of metric bolt which has confused me a little bit, the ones for the curvy look like they could be straight replaced with some nice stainless metric bolts but I don't think that's going to be the case for me

OK.My next port-of-call would be B&Q,

Or Homebase,

Maybe these?

That's a good shout actually considering I can just leave one out of the airbox without knackering anything, I might have to go and spend some time comparing screws over the weekend

That schematic say M5 x 20 and they are mushroom heads - what else do you want to know? Try ebay for stainless versions in low quantity.

That's for a curvy the pointy uses different screws and they don't provide any measurements.

See number 16 on here http://images.cmsnl.com/img/partslis...95033_e0a6.gif it's an actual screw with a point.

I'm not trying to be a smart-ass, but if you still have some, can't you just measure them? I don't get it. If they are pointed, do they really need to be? If they are bolts, do they need to be?

I was looking for a quick answer while I was stuck in the office but yes as I said I'll just whip one out when I get a chance and go comparing them in the shop.

To be honest I'm not even sure how you measure screws, they're not quite as easy as just saying M6 fine pitch are they?

You need to specify diameter, length (below the head unless it is a countersunk in which case it is overall length), head style and thread standard, pitch and material. In your case something like M5 x 20 mushroom pozi st/st. Yours would be standard not fine pitch.
