Trying to fit a new brake lever to a front Formula ORO K18 brake. The lever pivot pin is held in with a tiny grub screw does anyone know what size it is. It looks like a Torx screw smallest I have is a T10 which is too big.

Tried to download the Formula service pdf but it wont download been trying for 2 hours and it has downloaded 2% of file. Be quicker to fly to Italy and ask at the factory.

    Must have changed it for the new ones then.

    Just for future reference the grub screw is a Torx T8. I now have a complete set of Torx screwdrivers size T4 to T40 :D
