    Ages a go I bought a box of assorted small stainless steel bolts and there were some in there that fitted my old Deore brakes reservoir cap. I think it was only a fiver for a box of 200 bolts. Have a search on fleabay.

    Hey folks,

    I have Deore M446’s on my Cube, but i’ve had a little mishap and overtightend the little bolts holding the reservoir caps on and nearly rounded them off (don’t know my own strength some times). Anyone know what size torx bolt i should be looking for to replace them and the best place to buy some?

    cheers

    cheers tomaso, i’ll probably have to do something like that. Hopefully i’ll find something a bit stronger than the shimano ones

    They don’t need much nipping up, nowhere near two grunts and groan on the human torque wrench scale :mrgreen:

    i was chatting to my mate while doing them up, all three that were done in i just twiddled them a bit and they were screwed (pun intended). No effort involved at all, just cheap metal
