I will have to remove the bolt / nut from my GT cover later today and measure them before posting an answer tonight or tomorrow, unless someone else can do this earlier.

Actually there is Ball Mitsubishi (used to be Ball Suzuki) located in National City just outside San Diego that still services Suzuki cars and is a source for OEM parts.

http://www.ballmitsubishi.com/suzuki-parts.htm

I looked at my GTI. There are 3 fasteners in total in the middle of the 2 timing covers. From the top:

(1) One in the middle of the top cam cover, I don't have the factory bolt there anymore, the previous owner used a 2 inch long stud and a nut to hold the upper cover on. I don't know if the stud may be longer than 2 inches because it is threaded into the engine and 2 inches is visible. You can measure the depth of the upper timing cover to estimate how long a stud you need if you decide to do this instead of getting a bolt.

(2) Next down, there is a 2 inch stud that goes through a common hole for the upper and lower cover to be fastened together. A nut fastens onto this stud. The nut uses a 10 mm socket. Mine is missing, as the previous owner must have forgotten to put it back, or wanted it to be easier to remove the top cover for belt inspections by just removing the top fastener.

(3) Lastly, the stud that holds the timing belt tensioner sticks out through a hole in the lower timing belt cover. A nut fastens onto this stud located in the middle of the lower timing cover. The nut uses a 10 mm socket.
