    Missing bolt under downpipes on engine

    Hi all I've noticed there is s bolt hole in between pipes 3 and 4 which is missing...there's one between 1 and 2 which is there. Now it runs fine but should I pop a bolt in and what does it do ? I'll try and attach a pic. Many thanks

    I believe that threaded hole is normally devoid of any kind of fastener.

    Isn't that the one that the stay from the bottom of the rad goes or have I got my bad eye in today?

    So there's a stay to the rad connected there ? That would explain why it wobbles a bit. Thanks guys

    Yep, just had a quick look through the side vent in the LH lower cowl and it does appear to be part # 33 in this below pic

    Unfortunately on the parts fiche even though it shows it on the picture (appears to be in front of the radiator) it's not listed as a part in the parts list You might have to fabricate something

    Re: Missing bolt under downpipes on engine

    It's easy to build one out of flat stock. it's a thin sheet metal piece that has a large bushing and backstop that slips into the grommet on the lower half of your radiator. The radio mount is arubber grommet inside of a metal hoop that's attached to the rad.
    Do a cooling fan modification search and you'll get a bunch if pics of it

    Agree with Para45, part 33 on the Fowlers Fiche (I was in Fowlers yesterday!) The bolt is an M6 x 12 flange head.

    Re: Missing bolt under downpipes on engine

    Just a quick thought, if the stay is missing is the grommet still in the bottom of the rad? If not you will need one of those otherwise the stay will rattle about and do nothing.

    I guess the only issue is that without the original getting the correct measurements to do so would be a bit tricky As you say it's just some thin metal plate but it's not a straight right angle or anything

    Re: Missing bolt under downpipes on engine

    Agreed but its length is based off of the space to the lower cowl. The upper is a compound angle that exposes the bolt which has an 8mm head by the way. Then comes down through the gap between the primaries of the header. It make a turn up towards the radiator bottom. The end of it is a hollow sleeve that registers inside the radiator grommet with a snug fit to keep it in place along with the fact that its natural lay when coming up to the radiator bung keeps it seated. I extended my original one when 8 went dual fans and even farther when I put the CBR1000RR radiator in my bird.

    Just had another look in the daylight and from the right hand side vent and I was wrong, mine is actually a 90 degree bracket which would be part #9 on that picture above, so unsure what #33 is unless it's for a FI BB

    Just re looked on my parts fiche and yep mine is the "L" bracket #9 for 97-98 although my fiche says
    Description: STAY, RADIATOR
    Reference: 9
    Part #: 19102-MAT-000

    Yep just looked at my fiche and on the pic for an 05 BB it lists that angled bracket as
    Description: STAY, RADIATOR
    Reference: 1
    Part #: 19102-MAT-E00
    No mention of part #9 as in the 98 parts list or even on the pic

    To make it even more confusing on the 99-04 fiches it has a pic of both stays but only lists #33 in the parts list
    Description: STAY, RADIATOR
    Reference: 3
    Part #: 19102-MAT-E00

    With the "L" shaped bracket on mine I can't see how you could move the radiator forward as that would entail the lower cowl also getting pushed forward as the lower part of the "L" attaches to the lower cowl with grommet #6
    The only way I could see is to alter the mount on the bottom of the radiator but even then the bottom right corner of the radiator is pushing against the back of the lower cowl so I'd have to cut out the lower cowl to clear it
    Not sure if it's meant to be that way as the left side of the radiator looks almost level with the lower cowl cut-out but the right is ~10mm lower
    Maybe something is tweaked from having a couple of accidents and being repaired
