I lost the screw for the seat on my S1! Anyone have a source? I have an after market single seat. Not sure of the make but I am hoping the seat screw is the same.

I believe their legnth made them a custom order..

I have a hand full but they are shorter. If someone could take a pic and give me measurements I could have these extended

Once you get the new one stick a large E-clip (or similar) to keep it from falling into the road if it vibrates loose again.

Thanks everyone for all the help. It maybe asking a lot but if anyone has one of these screws perhaps they can take a photo of it next to a measuring tape or ruler; I would sure appreciate it.

Thanks, S1 owner. Jim2 does mention the length but I didn't see the diameter mentioned. I wanted the photo to show to the person at the fastener shop. The visual may help them find a replacement. The link to Southco shows some examples but none of them seem to match what I remember the screw looks like. That being said my memory is kinda selective in many things...
