I have a 06 night rod and was wondering the size of the 6 bolts(3 on each) that hold the intake stacks and lower housing for the air cleaner on. There are a couple that are stripped out and I don’t want to buy OEM bolts if I don’t have to. Thanks in advance!

Helicoil the existing holes for the OEM bolts. Somebody getting too aggressive with the tightening, huh?

Thank you guys! I bought the bike off of a friend and when I opened it up to change the spark plugs there were two bolts laying in the air filter housing.

That is why HD installed rubber O Rings over the stacks so the bolts would not come loose

I don’t they just came loose. I think the guy I bought it off over tightened them and stripped them out.
