    I believe that will be a T-45 torx

    I also noticed on my bike a few places where HD used "Torx Plus" fasteners instead of ordinary Torx. Why only in some areas, I don't know but they are there.

    If you use 1 for the other it will work but it is a sloppy fit.

    Now you have a good reason to go tool shopping best to get a fill kit of torx heads that fit on to your torque wrench
    i have a couple of sets that have a 3/8" and 1/2" square drives with a number of different sized torx bits that fit into them it didnt cost too much and i havent broke any yet and i have had them for years
