I am in need of 3 JIS screws for my dynamo cover. Does anyone have a few extra laying around they would be willing to sell me? I live in the Cincinnati area. I'd rather not tap my threads, so the 5x12mm .9 pitch screws are what I need.

Thanks!

I bought three of the 5x12 0.8 pitch screws from David Silver spares, ran them through a 0.9 die, and they work great. The JIS ones are hard to find and expensive. This way I can ride the bike until I come across the proper screws, and I don't have to tap the threads on the bike.

Reverse engineering, of sorts. Great idea!

Considering that Honda is selling the screws for $0.55 each I'd say it's worth a shot to try them. I have my doubts about eBay sellers in general and selling these screws for $6.85 each is insane.
