You are assuming the screw was lost from the switch housing and not the lever housing. The OP didn't tell us.

You're right; I'm assuming he means the screws for the switch housing. I thought that's what he meant by 'hand control cluster'.

And you could be correct.

Irrespective it is vital that the driver be inserted fully before attempting to do up or undo whichever fastener type you go for.

I mentioned before I have seen plenty of hex head cap screws rounded out. Probably more so by using cheap drivers that are not quite the right size.

As for the brake and clutch lever perch clamp screws:

On 2004-5 they're:
# 4262: Screw, M6 X 1mm X 22mm
.
(no washer)
On 2006 onwards:
# 4535M: Screw, M6 X 1mm X 25* torx button head
.
# 6101: Washer, 27/64" X 17/64" X 1/16"
.
Kit # 42425-05 includes 2 × # 4535M and 2 × # 6101.
Edit:

*: Harley say it's T25, but it's actually T27!

Hmmm, what gives?

Well, it seems that although the Harley Parts Catalogs (2006-9) say T25, it's actually a T27!

Hi Yes, thank I should have been more clear. It is the switch housing screws that I meant.

I got back from Lowes a couple days ago with the right Allen head screws and we are all good now. I kept a couple of spares in the tool box too.

Thanks, Slick
