Side panel cover screw size?

It seems I lost my side panel screws during my carb rebuild. Can anyone tell me the size of these so I can run to the hardware store?

Thanks!

Superb day for a ride.

Still waiting on a new pilot jet for my DR, so I dragged the Sportster out and rode to shoot one of my air rifles. Gorgeous weather!http://www.hunt101.com/watermark.php?file=847978&size=1
