Question Bolts for the 2017 R1200GS rear tire bumper

Does anybody know exactly what size the bolt is that fits the rear tire bumper for a 2017 R1200GS. I lost a single bolt and, of course, the dealer can't tell me what they are and will only sell me the rear bumper with all the bolts. Dealers are useless.
Thanks in advance for any help. I also imagine I'll have to find a speciality fastener dealer to find one that matches the torx head.

are you talking about the rear mud guard?
Take the other one to home depot and find something that works.

Yes. I did that, but I wanted an original looking bolt. The replacement I got from the hardware store is an allen bolt. I don't want to carry another tool for one odd bolt.
