Anyone know the thread specs for these bolts? Seems like I lost one somehow.

I know they're 8mm x 30mm and 8mm x 40mm
Maybe these would help?

Ok, thanks. I'll make sure to bring it with me next time I go to the hardware store (or rather, the store for bolts/fasteners).

It will be an "M8" Bolt i am pretty sure.

I am 174cm or 5’8.5” tall. I have normal proportions for my height. According to YT website I am either at the top range for a medium or the bottom range for a large. My current bike has a 444mm reach and feels on the smaller side for me. The medium Capra has 435mm and large has 455mm. I’m thinking I should size up to the large size Capra.

My main concerns are if I will have trouble with seat tube length being too long or if it will feel too big when I am seated and pedaling. Is there anyone who rides a large Capra at my height that can let me know how it fits them?

It’s definitely an M8, I just took the hardware out of a shock I bought, confirmed as a takeoff from a 2020 Capra (checked the shock code with Fox) and it had M8 x 30 and M8x 40 hardware in it.

Ok, excellent, thank you for checking.

Try giving YT canada and YT USA both and email and see if they have one kicking around. They were "out of stock" in canada at the end of July and I emailed YT Canada and they "found one".

My plan was just to swing by the hardware store and see if they have one (of course bring the other bolt with me). If they don't there's a store nearby that specializes in fasteners, so I could just go there. Hopefully I don't have to order the set from their website....

I also recommend not torquing the shock bolts over 10 N.m. YT specs 10-12, I went to 11 and the bolt head snapped.

It might not be the sexiest solution but I am sure you can at least find something that will work for now.

Found a bolt that fit (a M6), although it has a phillips head. Should work for now (nothing more permanent than a temporary solution). See image here of my solution.

Just keep an eye on it.

Yeah, of course, that's the plan now that I know something could go wrong.

I got a spare set of shock bolts if you need. Used but not over-torqued or anything.
