Question Replacement Hex Screws?

Where can I find hex screws to replace the ones that are starting to strip for my motorcycle. I wasn't able to get my tank up because the hex screws are starting to wear. I'm having this problem in a couple of different areas on my bike.

take the bolt and go to sears or ace hardware and find one that matches.

Some of the hardware and automotive stores are starting to carry specialty bolts. Within reason. Fairing bolts especially tend to have funny collars on them, that you can duplicate with difficulty at the hardware store. I got little plastic bushings that just fit over the screw and cut them to length with my dremel. You have to get those through a dealer or online sites. I ordered a ton of stuff for my CBR through bike bandit and service honda.
