Missing screw

Post  Lynchy on Sat 27 Jan 2018, 9:13 pm

Hi All, 

I noticed some of the fairing rattling since I bought the bike. Today I had some time to investigate and have found that the following screw is missing? 

I think it might be the cause. Pulled the other side out and its not a regular screw (it was a pain to get out and I put it back in). Anyone know what its called or where best to get one? 

Cheers

You could try your local nuts & bolts specialist store ( like fasteners australia or similar ) using the one from the other side as a sample , or just order one from your suzuki dealer.

Cheers, 

Definately will do. Just wondering if anyone had the specs to save me pulling the other one again. 

My hands are a little too fat for that area!

As Paul suggested, go to a nuy and bolt joint to get screws and things, unless it's a factory off set shank, that can't be bought anywhere else.
Suzuki will probably charge you , anywhere from $2.50-$5 per screw.
My local nut and bolt joint, (in Brisbane) sells screws for 20c.
Suzuki will rip you off. That's how they make money. ...after market parts.
I recently bought 10 stainless bolts....cost me $4, the equivalent from Suzuki, carbon bolt at that, was going to be $30.

Wow - they don’t miss you do they! 

Will try specialty fasteners first and go from there.

Is it possible that the missing screw attaches to another part.

I cannot think of the name of the item but here is a picky of one. I thought they were called a panel nut




Hey!, just found them.

They are called speed nuts and available from Bunnings, assortment pack of 15 for $5.44

My fairing is off and is in pieces at the moment, If you like I can snap a pic of the screw but it won't be until later today as I'm headed to the beach.

Thanks - I'll try bunnings first but if that fails I'll hit you up!

Don't forget that those parts are open to the environment so you'll need something suitable if going aftermarket.

 Good point - something corrosion resistant.

Shipping is the killer for small items on Megazip Lynchy

I think it was around $26US for those. If you were placing a bigger order I don't think it goes up much if at all.

The time I used them, total cost including shiping was about $70 Australian for what would have been closer to $100 purchased here

I pulled it out and had a look, it's not a threaded screw it's a self tapper.

If you go to Supercheapauto or Autobarn and have a look on the swivel stand that have bolts, nut's and whatnot you'll find what you're looking for.

Champion Handy Pack No BH755 will get you out of trouble and looks similar. The original Suzuki screwhead doesn't have a ridge, it's more rounded.

Done and done - it was exactly as said above a 10g self tapping screw. 60ish cents from Specialty Fasteners. 

Thanks all for your help.  

The rattle is still there though Sad 

Thinking it may the be aftermarket indicators? More investigation needed.
