Tin primary bolt size

Description: Colony cover bolts don't fit.

Hi guys,
Once more Vtwin gives me the dry butt poke. Got a new "replica" primary inner and outer. However the Colony cover bolts don't fit....The inner cover is a complete abortion with way too much mold slag on the edges, that they decided to chrome too. Anyway I need to tap these inner cover threads
Question, what friggin size are these threads? 10-24 seems way too big and 10-32 way too small. Or is this another Harley bastard thread?
.......Searching for the right tap....Haggis.

Hi Haggis, the correct screw is a 10-32x5/8. Cheers

Thanks DirtyD,
10-32 sounds right ,but that aint what they tapped in the inner.
Anyway picked up a 10-32 tap today, and will have at it tonight..........after a couple of Red Hook ESB's.
(best beer on the face of the planet....)
thanks again Dirty D., Haggis
