Mirror hole

Does anyone know the bolt number needed to use in the unused mirror attatchment hole in the handlebars?
I have a gps that comes with a bicycle attatchment. I want to attatch a bar via this hole. Any suggestions gratefully recieved.

Gadget Mount Options

Go to www.dallasmotorcycles.com and look under Gadget Mount Accys, and then look for BMW Gadget Mount. This is compatable with PanaVise mounting accys and all GPS units. Uses mirror mount hole..

Thanks. Being in the UK I really dont want to order from overseas.
The bolt size/order number would enable me to make my own.
I have all the parts to connect to the handlebars of a bike, i just need to attatch a small bit of tubing that size via the unused mirror mount

Ihad built a mount for my LT.
I used a ss 1/4 X20 hex head bolt through the hole, it went into a threaded rod connector nut. then used a shorter bolt on the other side to mount a plate, covered with velcor.

Hope this is a help on your project.

If you need more info e-mail me.

If you have a vernier you could measure it with it, most verniers allow both outside and inside measurements.
the other way to do it would be grab your drill bit selection and start poking them in the hole till you find the one that fits and then read the drill size of the one that fits best
