In a pinch in boonies, you can use 1/4x24 to replace M6x1 bolt.

Yeah, check local hardware stores, most carry metric nowadays. I actually found M7 bolts at hardware store in Morgan Hill on my way to Laguna Seca. Needed some to hold rim-halves on my BBS wheels.

You've got nearby:
Siskiyou Forest Products
Solano's Ace Hardware

2: That is most likely carburetor problem as DannoXYZ posted, But I be more concerned about actually head gasket leak than carburetor right now.

Chinmay here are some options for you in your neck of the woods too look into.

and

I also check your local bike shop and ask about motorcycle carburetor specialist.
Hi Anthony, you were right, the coolant was low causing the radiator to become a Cho Cho train. I bought some coolant and topped up as much it could fit in the radiator and reservoir tank. Ran the engine on idle for about 15 mins, no issue (that I could see) and things seemed okay.

Thank you for taking the efforts to look up carb cleaners for my region. The ones you mentioned, they are more so historic vehicle restoration guys and don't really do modern bike carb cleaning. I called them and they flat out said no

I'm going to look around for someone else more suitable for this job or simply take her to kawi shop near me nd get them do a professional job.

Local Kawi shop most likely will NOT be able to do adequate job of carb restoration. Ask them though, they may know some ancient hermit who can actually do it.
