Help! Thread size of rear caliper mount bolt

I messed up on my 08. I removed the rear caliper mount bolt (on top of caliper) and
cross threaded the bolt. Anyone know the thread size of the hole so i can
tap from the back and fix thread? Where can I get a new bolt? All internet
sites that have diagram do not have a part number for the bolt.

The bolt can be gotten from your local Honda shop. Then you can take it to a higher end hardware store and they should be able to match the threads with a tap.

Or you can drill it out and tap it for a bigger bolt.

I would do the former. Many would do the latter.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Should be 10x1.25. Will check tomorrow if I think of it.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

This link may help. I think you are looking for #20 in the picture.
