Exclamation Help identifying tool bit size

I need to buy a torx bit to install crash bars on my 2005 model year bike - I first need to remove the torx screw shown in the attached photo. For the life of me, I can't find anywhere with certainty the bit size I need to get. Is it a T20?

That's a T50 on my 2016.

Sears has been running some pretty good promotions that I've availed myself of in the tool department. You can probably bit up a whole set of bits and T-handles there for less than usual.

Unfortunately, I'm in Canada where Sears went belly-up last year.

Cheers.

Thumbs up

Thanks for your help guys. Finally I opted for a new 122 bit set (I was overdue for an upgrade). Turns out it was a T55.
