Skidplate mounting bolts

Does anyone know the bolt size and thread pitch for the skid plate/bash plate mounting bolts? I'm working from the suggestions in this thread, but the dimensions he gives (4x0.6mmx30mm) don't make sense. An M4 is much too small, and 0.6 pitch isn't commonly available. I'm starting to think he might have meant 4 (quantity) M6 bolts in 30mm length. Does anyone know the size?

Heck I probably should have just tried putting a fairing bolt in there to see if it matched, but now I'm at work.

Art, my thoughts are that engineers are smart, and I'm not saying it in the self-deprecating "I'm just a consumer" way you often hear. Why get a modern machine if you're going to strip off everything invented after 1990? I can see making some adjustments, but I think that ripping off anything I don't recognize is foolish. Just my 2 cents and only because you asked for them.
