basically, ive lost the bolt for one of the cranks on my Norco the problem is the size of the crank bolt its 25mm and its super hard to get a crank bolt the size of this. I was just wondering if i could get a dome head m8 x 25mm to use as the crank bolt, would it work?

I did it and it worked fine with the bolt and flat washer. Mine keep coming loose and I was riding one day and lost it I just stopped by the hardware store and bought the bolt and a washer never had a problem since.

As long as you match thread pitch, yea, it will.
