superbe pro crank duscap size?

i lost one of the dustcaps from my superbe pro track cranks (don't ask) and was looking to buy something unnecessarily excessive as a replacement.
I found some nice looking titanium caps, but they're being sold under the following sizes:
m8, m14 and m15.
This means nothing to me.
Does anyone know 1) what size dustcaps suntour superbe pro track cranks take, or 2) a site for nos superbe pro caps?

??

are you sure the dustcaps you're looking at aren't self-extracting crankbolts with integrated dustcaps ?

the superbe dustcaps are the standard size..
they're never described as such but it's a 22mm thread with a 5mm hex socket
almost all square taper cranks use the same size

yeah, i had it kinda mixed up.
the m8/m14/m15 size referred to the crank bolt size-- the caps came in a set together w/ bolts.

thx...
