Bolts for 110 plastic fuel tank cradle

Not sure if these are 8mm or 10mm?
I have the 8mm riv-nuts but if they are 10's i don't want to skimp and lose my tank. I mean the 2 that go to the rear cross member and the 2 that bolt through the cross member just in-front of it.
thanks

The rears are 8mm, the fronts are 10mm without captive nuts.

Your was a Td5 right? I had to install my riv nuts into my frame as it was set up for the metal 300 tank and had the bracket in the front. I switched over to the newer version plastic tank. So it makes sense that your riv nuts were already there.

There's a clip that holds the front bolts in situ (often assisted by a sh*tload of rust), but maybe on later frames the went to welded nuts. I'm skeptical though, that would be tantamount to an engineering improvement.
