looking for 7mm rod bolt + nut

I'm trying to track down a 7mm rod bolt +nut for a non-Yamaha project I'm working on.* Does anyone know if any Yamaha model used M7 rod bolts?* Thank you.

Do you mean all-thread/ threaded rod?

Thanks for the tip. I need bolts (cap screws) and they have to be strong enough to serve as rod bolts, like grade 8 or better.

Do you have any bolt specialty stores in your area?

I tried them. If it was 6 or 8 mm no problem, but 7mm is an oddball size. i can find them in grade 5 but not stronger. I actually did find out that Mini-Coopers use a 7mm rod bolt but they didn't use nuts. So I need a nut to fit the mini-cooper bolts or a rod bolt and nut that fit each other.
Thanks, Peter

You didn't say what you are doing with the bolt but will a 1/4" work? It's slightly smaller but....??

I need them as rod bolts for an antique bike. And I think I've found them - Kawasaki Ninja 650 used 7mm rod bolts with nuts. Just waiting for them to arrive.
Thanks for taking an interest in my search.
