Would M6 20MM bolts do front and back V-brake pivots??

Got Manitou SX-R forks on the front.. which might be M8??

Fitted the new brakes after hours last night (still got cables to do) and the bolts are the same back and front..

Was looking (unsuccessfully) for black ones and the option of m6 or m8 threw me :?

Actually.. now I don't remember whether it was M6 or M8 - probably something completely different :lol:

Yeah M6 for the bolts to hold the brake arms on, I had to buy some the other week.
I used M6 x 16 or 18 mm iirc.
