Confirmed on DB2 and 4 also....as Geekay says...15mm dia...11mm deep...TOP of hole size 9mm...its a button head "low head" bolt.....so only the top of the round snail cam is 9mm dia.....it will be a stepped hole.....or else the thing would fall off no matter how tight the bolt.....I can measure the bolt if needed...although you dont need to fit a low head...but just drill twice....once for dia of shaft of bolt and then countersink the top for the bolt head youre using....makes sense to us low head as then youre leaving more meat on the round alloy cam.........The outside of the hole nearest the outside of the piece is 1mm....very close to the edge....but again....it doesnt need to be this close...all depends on whether you've got a pillar drill....proper drill bit and clamp to hold the piece whilst drilling

the hole centre, measured across the widest part (15mm) is 9mm in from one end.
Or 6mm in from the other end............... Very Happy

I think the bolt is M4 but I'll change the length to get a nut behind it.

Now why would you need a locking back-up nut behind it??/ Laughing (He says ...feverishly darting to the garage to check and nip up the said 4mm bolts on his own bikes...)

Not familiar with your bike...but be sure to check on clearance with the swingarm.....DB2 and DB4 footpeg hangers are mighty close to the upswing of the swingarm....

same as the rear master cylinder attachment bolts on the 6R - threaded into alloy casting, then secured with Nyloc nuts.

Before then, from when Galleria closed down. I got the frame rails and exhaust heat shield at the same time. The master cylinder heel plate was P3 / Oily although i cut it down a bit
