Hi,

Would anybody happen to know the bolt size for the battery retaining bolt. I managed to loose it yesterday and would prefer the battery to be fully secured.

I know it was a 10mm bolt head so am guessing it would be an M8.

Will be m6 bolt. Rule of thumb for most bolts head size is 1.5 x thread size +1mm.

So to work out the thread size from the head the equation would be size of head - 1 / 1.5 So if i had a 13mm head the thread would be m8.

(13-1)/1.5=8
to check that using windy1603's rule 1.5*m8+1=13

Thank you all, the formulas have been noted for future reference as they will make life a bit easier.

I've not got a battery retaining bolt again, so the new battery I fitted the other day won't be going anywhere in a hurry.
