Does anyone know what bolt I need for this???

Earlier, I noticed this bolt was missing from my sissy bar. I don't know what thread or lenth it was, but need to replace it before the GF gets back in town so we can ride.
The bolt isn't shown in the factory parts diagram as far as I could see.

Will one of the two lower screws fit?

You know that's a good question, I didn't check. I'll try in the daytime. That would definitely make things easier...

According to the illustration on pp 4-4 of the service manual, the three screw/bolts fastening the backrest are identical. When reattached, the recommendation is to use Loctite and 7.2 ft./lb torque.

Bike Bandit OEM parts diagram for the backrest confirms that the bolts are identical and you can buy them for a scant $1.26 each:

Mine loosened up and fell out too. i went online and ordered it. the bolt is ornamental and is a certain length so it doesn't go thru to the padding on the other side. i lost one of the tank mount acorn nuts also and ordered it at the same time. this way my bike is still factory Yamaha spec parts and not some Hodge podge pieced together bike. it didn't cost much and the parts came right to the door. probably took less time even with shipping because i didn't have to reverse engineer a stupid bolt, drive to the hardware store, buy 3 or 4 bolts of different size and length to make sure i don't have to make another trip. get home find they are either still to long or to short, cut a long one off, fix the threads i just screwed up, put it in, and it doesn't look as good as the stock one.

It looks like stratowart has an extra one. Haha I'll have to figure out a few lil things to order. I hate paying $7.99 shipping on a $1.19 part!!

Stratowart, Do you want to sell that screw? One fell out of my watch that looked just like that one of yours and I can't find one anywhere. One more thing, could you please tell me what time it is?
