Replacement screw(s)?

I need to replace a screw and was hoping someone can help me find the right one. The same screw on the opposite side is stuck pretty hard. I've stripped the hex, then sawed a flat-head notch in the head and that didn't work either. I'm going to have to drill it and get it out with an easy-out. I'm including a pic.

So... where can I find a replacement for this screw I'll be further destroying (and all other screws on the bike for future reference)?

Garage
http://www.boltmotorcyclehardware.co...9b0512fcc4a543 carries a lot of fasteners. The Suzuki part number for that one if you want an exact match is 09139-06122
It's a 10mm shaft length M6-1.0 large button head in stainless steel.

Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Always amazed...

You, Sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. And as I'm sure has been said before- your presence on this site is invaluable.

Thank you.

Replacement screw

It's amazing; I have the same problem with the same screw on my 07 wee. First I'll try the slotted screwdriver approach....were you able to get it out eventually?

Well....

To be honest, I haven't made it out to the Zuk dealership to get the replacement screw, so I haven't tried the EZ-Out yet. I'll post up when I get to it, but until I need to get that fairing off, it's just not been a pressing matter. Let me know if you have any success though!

switch

you could also switch to a bolt or screw taht has a bigger head so it doesnt happen again . ive gone from screws to bolts on carb float bowls before so stripped heads are a thing of the past

I put a tiny bit of anti-seize on most all of the non critical fasteners to avoid future problems. It sounds like it was already too tight, perhaps from dealer service or the original assy.
