Does anyone know if Sram Red uses the same jockey wheel bolt sizes as Sram Force ie M4 and M5 as I've rounded off my bolts and have been struggling to find replacements.

Sram only see fit to supply the bolts as part of a whole cage assembly at over £50..........not what I call great after sales support.

I've found some for Sram Red but just want to check they have two different sizes like Force and are not like Shimano and both M5

Thanks

    you could try using a hacksaw to cut slots in the top of the damaged screws

    otherwise go to lbs and see if they've got a couple in the parts bin from an old rear mech that they'll sell you, or give as a freebie if you buy something else
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Already been to all lbs but no joy. Good tip using hacksaw which I'll try.

    What I really want to do is replace the bolts. I can get some Sram red, just need to know if they will fit Sram force

    If you still have the old ones then measure the diameter of the threaded part to determine the size using this handy chart wot I made for you :D

    M4 = Metric 4mm diameter
    M5 = Metric 5mm diameter
    etc
    my isetta is a 300cc bike

    Thanks for the handy chart, but I know they are M4 and M5.

    What I want to know are Sram Red the same ?
