    Hi K9F

    I'm new to this all, what are "moleys"
    If all fails I will end up with Vise grips. Waiting for 7/16 12pt socket. I am replacing with Goodridge hoses.

    The thread is 3/8-24, they don't have a metric socket size head, 7/16" is the correct socket size for these banjo bolts. You can't get an imperial bolt with a metric head.

    edit,.. looking at it again, I'm just wondering if the bolt is a star tool head on the bottom picture.

    It just looks like salt corrosion to me, both master cylinder and caliper bolts are the same part number on a 2006 Touring model, so all three bolts have a 12-point head.

    I'd only use molegrips as a last resort, they have a reputation for wrecking bolts, if they slip they chew the bolt head up.

    Your 2006 Touring banjo bolts are H-D part number 41747-82A, the thread is 3/8-24 (UNF), the socket size is a 12-point 7/16".

    An 11/16" is far too large, that's almost 3/4".

    The Touring model caliper banjo bolts went metric in 2008 to 41750-06B they're M10 X 1mm pitch, and use a 6 point 12mm socket.
    7/16 to large as well "I bit the Bullet last night and ordered an imperial 12pt socket set"

    Sorry about that, I got the size from the USA forum, possibly the home market bolts are different from the international ones.

    An Imperial socket set will come in very useful to you in the future as there's very few metric fasteners on the big twins, they're very "Old Skool".

I had this problem with my 2003 road king and my mechanic said it was a funny size, i no longer live near him and have lost his number. but to everyone thanks for the help and support with this threads.
