Gas cap screws

I just got my 2002 Road Star a few days ago and I noticed today when I was fueling up that one of the screws in the gas cap has come out I tried fishing in the tank with a magnet but have had no success finding it. I tighten the other screw up and it definitely fits better. Does anyone know what size screw I need to replace the one that is lost?

I would suggest taking the cap off, cover the hole and carefully take the other screw out of the cap [after taping it together] then go to the local hardware store /bolt store and match it up.
The parts fiche only shows a complete cap assembly so it's no help.

I was going to do that but scared that it would come apart, luckily I found a box of metric screws and a number 4 worked perfectly.

Cool another crisis averted
