Is there a specific specification for the bolt that mounts the shock to the top tube of the 5.5EVP? It's M6x40mm, but is it super high strength or anything like that? Thanks in advance.

I got a bit over-eager on my tightening check on this bolt and striped the threads. Had to cut it off and I've never been so nervous/scared when using a Dremmel before in my life. Thankfully I got it off witout the cutting blade touching the frame.

on the bolt head it will most likely have the strenght number, 10.0? or even stronger 12.9. Not to hard to find if your in a city. Try hardware store, auto shop,etc. I have a box of M6x50mm 12.9 bolts, too bad your in Ireland or I'd send some your way. I got em online at McMasterCarr.com always lightly grease threads on bolts so they don't strip
