Exhaust stud size?

I was lubing up the shift linkage last night, I've been doing a lot of miscellaneous maintenance while I'm waiting to get my seat back from Russell, and I noticed the I only had one stud mounting the exhaust to the front cylinder.
Does anyone know the size of that stud? Torque values? Any reason beside gaulding that I couldn't use a bolt vs stud and nut?
Also while I've got it stripped down should I swap the plugs out? I've already changed all the fluids except coolant... any other maintenance items I should hit on ???
It's and 04' with 18,000 miles.
As always thanks for any input... and keep it in the wind...

Re: Exhaust stud size?

Now I'm getting scared with thanks to that great similar threads at the bottom of the page! I didn't lay on my back to see if the stud may have snapped off... if it has let the fun and games begin!
I still need tourque values... strange problem and seems to appear mostly on the front cylinder... spooky !!!

Re: Exhaust stud size?

While in that area, also check the studs/bolts holding the exhaust pipe to the frame. I had a few of them work loose over time.
