Fork drain screws.
« on: March 15, 2019, 06:53:56 pm »
   Thanks to a helpful grandaughter I now am looking for new screws to put into the botton of my C12 fork legs. What size are they please ?  I was draining the forks before putting new oil in and she went into the garage to help tidy up. Yes two little screws lying on the hydraulic bench should not be there so she disposed of them, Where ? Your guess is as good as mine so I just need the size again... Thanks.    ::)   Griff

I haven't got one to measure now Griff, but from memory I think they were 1/4" cycle....but knowing how things were, they may have been 2BA  :-\ :-\...just remember they were small.....haven't you got any spare bolts to try?
You need to get your grand daughter doing worthwhile jobs where she cant lose stuff...like mixing concrete or digging trenches. ;)
Not much help am I  :D

Hi Griff
Yesterday there was a topic on the A10 forum about the fibre washers and screws
Consensus is 2BA

They are indeed 2BA. I used a pair of steel 2BA screws to protect the threads when I sent off the A7 fork sliders for powder coating.
