How come?
Ditto, plus the red loctite recommended becomes pretty useless when subjected to the high temperatures you'll be generating. If the reason is because it's a pain to put your wheels on, cut the head off the stock bolt and weld a similar sized piece of round stock and taper the end to make a guide pin.

The stock bolt is listed as:
Thread: M12 x 1.5
Thread length: 29.5mm
Seat Angle: 60 degrees

Hope that helps.

I have a few of these things in stock.

The actual bolt diameter (minus the threads) is about .435 inches or 11.05mm. (my micrometer is in inches so I'm converting here). So the knurl you're going to need should be a little larger than that size.

Issue: With all studs the knurl and shoulder is larger than the tread itself. For instance on a 12mm x 1.5 stud, the knurl is not going to get much smaller than about 12.4mm. So you can either drill or run a smaller stud.
