Hey guys, wondering if anyone knows what size is the bolt on the rear shaft box where you drain the gear oil, mine broke and had to drill it out now i want to get a new one but no clue on the size. This is the smaller bolt on the bottom, not where you fill the oil but where you drain it. thanks.

Honda likes to keep items the same. The bolt you need is an 8 mm. Honda used there same bolt for the 1000/1100/1200 final drives.

Good luck
