I looked at the parts list...They appear to be the same bolt.

Same part number usually equals same part.

Only thing that you may want to watch is the torque spec for the rotor bolt.

On my KLR 650 the rotor bolt is torqued to 130 ft. lb. I treat it like a head bolt in that I never reuse them. Sure they look fine but torque stretches threads and if that bolt ever broke off in the end of my crankshaft I'm having a very bad day.

Honda never re-uses part numbers for different items. If it's the same part number, it's the identical part. Even if they supersede the part with a new, improved version of the same part, they give the new, improved version a new part number.

Even if the part is used for another bike, and for another purpose, the title of the part follows the part number.

There are small spacers on the driver foot pegs of the GL1200's that are titled, "Collar, chain case" Pt. # 40515-413-000

Interestingly enough that is still a good part number.

It seem there is still some "parts bin " philosophy on our wings.
