Does anyone know the spec of these for a 1994 model? I am having a heck of a time figuring it out.
I want to order some from anywhere but am not able to find them easily.

It's an M6 dia and 17-18 mm long (threaded portion). I don't know the pitch.

The are "normal" metric (not metric fine). The Duc of Omaha system says 6mm x 16 PN. 77150658B 99c a pair. You should have the pitch on the tap. I would bet it's 6 x 1. I love your tap wrench handle BTW!

You would find them at a big hardware or if you want to run stainless maybe try Fastenal. If you go into the store and ask (if it's convenient) they are more likely to not worry about minimum quantities. McMaster would work also but they would want you to buy 50 of them. McMaster and maybe fastenal would give you a low head option which Ducati seem to like using. Last low head fasteners I bought from McMaster were Italian.

Fastenal sometimes have small packs of 4-10 fasteners in stock too. But metric stainless might push it a bit. The hardware places I have been to in the US all have those big sections of steel draws with specialist fasteners. I have bought metric stainless at a big hardware in Hawaii Kai Mall when we were staying nearby.

The valve cover bolts on my '95 are just standard 6mm x 1.0 coarse thread pitch bolts Kevin.

Thanks guys, I will keep looking. I really wasted a lot of time searching online today for those screws. Local hardware store had metric stainless but they were 20mm long so I decided to pass. So if I want pretty and functional yellow zinc coated I guess my search is going to be tough? Has anyone ordered these from Ducati? Do you know if they are yellow zinc or CAD plated? I cant see a picture on the pro italia web site but they are .43 each which I can swing.

Have you checked Probolt.com?
Oh those look good!...and available in aluminum! They are 16mm length and the OEM's are 17. The ones I ordered are 18mm which is a good thing since the holes I re-worked are pretty beat up near the top so the bottom of the hole is where I am going to get the strength from but had I seen these earlier I would have ordered. Nice!

I think these might be used on the belt covers too, so fresh bright bolts will be nice to have. The ones I posted earlier are from a real established automotive production company which is harder and harder to find.

You could try these guys - Aluminum Bolt kits for Ducati - they do kits for frame, fairing or engine - or a complete kit. I don't know if they do individual items.

Here's a pic of the new screw next to the OEM's. I think the Ebay seller I posted measured them wrong because they are actually 16mm and not 18mm. Still nice to have new hardware all around on my heads.

1st & 2nd pic is the screws (from left) New silver zinc and good to install, middle one is OEM Yellow zinc, and one on right was frozen in hole I had to soak it a while and play with it a bit to get it out. Thank God it didn't snap off!

3rd pic is all torqued up and ready for install!

4th & 5th pic is the new Silver Bolt look! Not too bad actually!
