Default 6x25 bolt question

Hey there,

I broke the upper rad bolt on my '09 Strom.

My question is, are all 6x25 metric bolts the same? Can I just go to the hardware store, or do I need to go to a Suzuki dealer?

The Suzuki part # is 09118-06097-A0S

It is described just as a 6x25

I also wonder, since it goes right into the frame, which is aluminum, does the bolt need to be a particular material?

Any advice would be helpful.

Cheers

There are odd thread pitches available but that is typical, M6x1.0, 25mm long.

Beauty, thanks for the help, I'll get that bolt and apply some anti sieze.

Much appreciated!

Default bolt grade

metric and no-metric bolts come invarious grades (of strength)

don't go below a grade that matches the original

Mertic thread pitch chart
Metric Thread Chart - by Zero Fasteners

Thread pitch is the number of millimeters per thread, or the number of threads per inch.

Bolt grade (strength) chart
Bolt Depot - Bolt Grade Markings and Strength Chart
There are more grades for special applications than just these.

Default Handy

This is a very handy tool to have around. That company BelMetric is also a good place to buy metric fasteners and TimeSert stuff if you can't find it at your local Ace Hardware.
