I have the same bike....

My manual lists "Rear brake Master cylinder and frame" bolt as M6x1.0 (so Yes Virginia, it is Metric)

As far as the radiator/fuel tank....I'm not so sure about this one, but I think this is it.

"Air scoop and fuel tank" also, M6x1.0

good luck

yeah the air scoop fuel tank was a M6...

rear master cylinder might be a M4 or M5 since M6 was a lil big

thanks for the help though.. ill have to go pick up some more bolts and see what fits!
