replacement bolts

I'd like to get some replacement bolts for the carburetor and airbox clamp bolts. Those Philip heads are a PIA.

Anyone know off hand what size they are?

I found the replacement bolts for mine at Lowes. I picked up allen head bolts. I'll try to track down the bags they came in for the part # tonight if you're interested?

I went digging, I guess I threw away the packaging.. I took one of the screws with me. It's an M4 8mm long.. I got M4 allen head bolts that were 10mm long and they worked just fine. They were in one of the drawers in the fasteners section.

Couldn't get Allen had at the shop I went to.. But got 8mm socket sized. Had to modify the clamp a little to fit the socket in there to tighten.. But worked well.!
