I lost the bottom bolt that holds the kickstand on the bike. I have a collection of metric bolts and some reason none of them are the same size that was in it. Does anyone know the size of that bolt.

Those bolts are a M10 X 1.25 X 20mm. I too have replaced those guys and Loctited the replacements. No problems since then. Just out of curiousity, do you start your bike on the kickstand ? I have to and I think that the added pressure is what loosened the originals. Good luck.
