Background:
Driving through downtown, upshifted to 6th, felt like shifter gave way. Got bike back home, waited until daylight, found that I had a broken bolt on the end that transfers rotational energy to back and forth energy. The "tie rod end" (for lack of better term right now) had come completely off the splines.

Question:
According to this http://www.kawasakioriginalparts.co...k_02=99917-1972&block_03=MC&year01=2002&ca=CN , the bolt is #132, a 6x20. I looked for such a bolt in my local hardware stores, but "M6-1.0" is not the right diameter or thread pitch. What size is it?

V, you will notice that there are 2 of that #132 in yor diagram. one each end. chances only 1 is lost.? take the other one out and go to the store and match it. buy 2x, keep original for spare.
that is 6mm x 20mm long. so also is #92022.
also buy some BLUE thread lock sealer, do NOT use RED.. use it, the blue stuff. only a drop is needed. bam! just like that. yor a genius. poncho
