I bet you can find what you want at ACE or another hardware type store. I shop there for stainless, chrome, black, hardened, just about any metric, they have it.

Just like dirtrack said, a good hardware store may have what you want. I have a local store that carries all types of bolts SAE and Metric. This is where i found the long metric bolts to convert my ACCT's to MCCT's. They even have the allen head screws in metric and in all kinds of lengths and thread variations. Lots of luck in finding what you need.

Round here we have several different "screw-shops" that specialize in fastners of all kinds. I had a bugger of a time getting those out also when I did my stator last week. I believe the only "sticking-point" is the long shoulder and short thread length (for the o-ring) on the OEM screws. Getting an allen socket oval head countersunk stainless metric screw at a nut & bolt house shouldn't be too hard, you'll likely have to order a longer one than OE if you want to maintain the long smooth shank on the new ones and you'll need the thread diameter and pitch. A good hacksaw blade or a cut-off wheel in a dremel or die-grinder will make quick work of shortening the screws.

Ordered parts on Friday, had the engine out on the workbench the next Sunday afternoon/evening (Using a MC Jack to remove the engine is a huge time-saver), Took all the neccessary peices apart Monday and started cleaning the engine and the frame. took 2 evenings in the garage to put it back together (One evening to put the engine back together and secure and another to bolt on all the "stuff"). Keep in mind I did the stator, R/R, all new cables, goat's belly bypass, and varius other smaller mods. If it were just the stator & R/R it could have been done in a night.
Overall hours-wise, probably a total of 18-20 hours.
A job that at the dealer for the stator change only they estimated around $950! My total investment with all the new parts (minus the 'sweat-equity') around $400.
