    Would anyone happen to know the tap size for the mounting holes for a Magura 4 bolt setup? My threads are on the verge of being crossed, so I would like to ream them before they strip...
    And the funny thing is Magura didn't even know... I thought that was odd...

    I'm assuming that is a M4 x .07. Right?

    yeah, that's what i thought. had me a bit confused...My tap set only has the 0.7mm pitch and that works for me.

    Wow, I'm blown away that you didn't get a post like "what the hell is a tap?". I was totally expecting that.

    The M4 x .7 is too small... possibly an M5?

    Test it out on a water bottle cage mount first? I think it would be the same thread. If you have a metric tap set, it would be pretty standard. My tap set has about 6 taps, and it was one of those.

    test a dye on magura bolts, then use same size tap.
