..., find the details online but most part resellers don't have the 2018 model; or ask the experts  :001:

Is it item 10?

The OP wants longer screen fasteners, but I contend that these are not available from alternate suppliers.
At least, I haven't found any suppliers.
The fastener is M5, which has a thread pitch of 0.8 mm - see picture.
(Metric threads are not measured in threads per inch (TPI), unsurprisingly.)
It is also 12 mm long - again see picture.
You might find that Triumph stocks them for another bike or another area on the Tiger.
Let us know how you fare.

Is it a shouldered screw to prevent screen damage. If as Steve suggested it is item 10 then item 11 washer goes with it. The screw is shown as M5x16 the washer bore 8.4mm suggesting a shoulder.

Just to clarify, I don't know if item 10 is right hence 'is it item 10', I saw it was a shoulder screw and part of the screen assembly. My main aim of my response was to show that there are 2 easy sources of parts lists Fowlers and WOT.

Make a "shoulder" spacer from a piece of tube --- if you can't buy a shoulder bolt

I would call those flanged fasteners.
What we need is a fastener with a step under the bolt head to protect the plastic windscreen.
That prevents the fastener from crushing the plastic.

Ref piece of tube.

Cut off a 4 or 5mm piece for each bolt that needs a shoulder.
Razor saws or junior hacksaw blades readily available
