    Question Virage Exhaust bolt sizes required.

    Does anyone know what size the exhaust bolts are on a 2001 Virage TX 1200 Carbed?
    These are the 4 bolts to attach the pipe to the manifold.
    I need to replace the front left bolt as it sheared when removing the exhaust.
    A local manufacturer can supply, if they know the sizes & thread.
    Any help would be gratefully recieved.
    Thank in advance.

    The main reason I ask is that over here in the UK, we generally use metric fittings, so I don't really have a clue about AF or UNC fittings.
    Either that or I'm just plain dumb.......

    Can they measure a couple of the other exhaust bolts and go from that?

    I believe that they are 12mm X 1.50mm pitch. I don't know the length.

    Thanks for the info.
    From the parts diagram, these bolts are part number 7517004 and it looks like both the front bolts are the same size. I'll take the other bolt off the front & take it down to Duchy Fasteners. They should be able to find a replacement - or make one!
    Just thought I'd try - save me having to take mine off. Ah well.
    Thanks again guys. I'll let you know when I've got one.

    You're spot on! I measured the other bolt that matches & tested the thread with my tap & die, & the 2 front bolts are definately M12 x 80mm long.
    Thanks for your help.
