Fellas, what pitch thread are the head bolts on a SRM jug?

My bike started blowing from the head gasket and under inspection the studs are a tiny bit too long.

reading the instructions again it says that if you have a 70+ head that the studs should be shortend by 3mm, something I didn`t do because I actually didnt know I had such a late head..doh!

I have stripped the threads, so ne to fing the right size helicoil.

Cheers.

Do you have a thread gauge to measure the bolts? Factory barrels were 26tpi (from memory)
