Hi can anyone advise please the summer screen for my adventurer has according to the instructions 4 5mm screws to fastern the screen to the brackets. The original felt washers being past there best I used some rubber washers that required longer countersunk screws. There lies the problem the 5mm metric screws will not screw into the brackets the nuts on the bottom brackets will not go on the screws so either they are a different pitch or they are not 5mm metric does anybody know please.

Exactly - the bolts are not metric. They are 3/16" x 32 NF bolts but I forget the length.

The reason these bolts are not metric on a metric bike, is because the screen is actually made by National Cycle for Triumph (I think).
