Left hand thread 10 mm bolt

Hey guys:
Looking for a L.H. thread 10 mm bolt, to fit the right side mirror threaded hole that has a plastiuc cap on it, on my 02 FZ1. Allen wrench headed bolt would be perfect. About an inch long or so. Anybody have any ideas today? All the bike shops are closed on Monday here. Why on earth Yamaha and Ducati do that is beyond me!

Chrysler had left handed threads on the left side wheels on its cars for donkeys years. About mid eighties or so, they finally figured out that other car company wheels were not falling off, even with all right hand threads! Dumb and dumber!

Anybody have any bolts out there? Thanks for your time.
Dean

Dean,
I've got the adapters to convert it to right hand threads, and I've also got the Rizoma adapters for mounting thier mirrors, and the adapters come with both the LH and RH threads.

Shoot us an e-mail and we'll take care of it.

Hey PJFZ1:
Thanks for the quick reply. Do not need the adapter, just the the left hand threaded bolt that you show. Mounting a pair of Napoleon AP-104 mirrors. The left side i used a longer 8mm clutch lever bolt, and mounted said mirror on top of the clutch purch. Very clean install, and that was a easy gig. The right side is course, a pain in the neck, with left handed threads! If possible, could you just sell me the left handed threaded bolt, so i can mount the right side mirror the same as the left? Would like to keep the right side mirror, as low as possible on the handle bars. That would be great if you could. Thanks again.
Dean
P.S. If you cannot sell me just the bolt, i will understand.
