Bolt Replacements

Anyone know where I can find replacement bolts for my stem faceplate? I over torqued one and stripped the washer. Believe they are titanium. Bike is Specialized Tarmac SL7 Pro

they’re likely M5s - if you don’t mind having some spares, you could probably source replacements at somewhere like McMaster-Carr. I replace the Ti bolts in my stems with stronger steel ones from McMaster - pretty easy to find identical length and head shape

Looks like they only carry M5 and M6. I need an M4 tapered hex in 20mm. Suprisingly very hard to find even with this thing called Google. Any suggestions appreciated

Check your local area for industrial supply houses. We have one called Shamrock Bolt and Screw...

McMaster Carr stocks them. No titanium but several dozen other types of materials.

How do you "strip" a washer? Wouldn't you just need a washer then?

Have a look at https://www.boltdepot.com/ I was able to get 1/4-28 reverse thread in stainless steel.
They probably have what you need.
