Stopped for a break today and on returning to the bike I noticed the big fairing bolt at the top rear of the right hand side panel is missing :mad:

Any tips on the best place to get one, are they still available from Honda?

Any advice very gratefully accepted.

I was missing two out of my tail cowl. I didn't torque them enough. I went to my dealer and bought two for $3.00 each.

Hondapartsnation.com will have them too. But you pay shipping. My dealer matches their price.

+1 re Biker Bling for non OEM

David Silver Spares or Fowlers for OEM


eBay too…

Also ask yourself why you are missing one… theft, not enough torque, stripped thread etc just in case you need to fix something else you'll simply lose the next one too (like I've done a few times… doh!)

Hello, again Fellow Fighter Pilot! There seems to be quite a few places that you still score those bolts...
One place I often use with half-decent prices when I can't find what I need anywhere else! and relatively fast shipping. Zero complaints.

Good pricing ($2.84) but horrendous quote for shipping to UK ($25). Wonder if talking to tgem directly could get a sensible postage price?

you might also keep an eye on ebay listings for a "lot" or "box" of bolts from a teardown. nice to have spares of whatever...

Hi Guys, thanks for all the replies and info!

I was luck enough to find an almost full set of used ones on E-Bay for £35. A bit corroded, but a bit of polishing with the aid of a drill and the replacement looks great!! :)

Now I've got some spares as well and even some of the plastic fasteners, so this cloud has a silver lining :):)

I did see the Biker Bling ones and while they do look very good, I'd probably not have been happy just knowing that all the bolts weren't matching exactly. But if I needed a full set, I'd definitely go for them.

I've got 4 sets of those fasteners and I can say that you can't see a difference between them unless they are laying side by side.

I replaced all of my old bolts with stainless steel countersunk bolts with aluminium countersunk washers. Not too many different sizes but they still look good.

All I'd say re replacement furniture and fixtures is you get what you pay for i.e. quality is always worth paying for (assuming avoiding scams). False economy otherwise (albeit medium to long term).

I for one will now always treat my BB to the metalwork she deserves to keep her pukka.

PS I'd like to say "pukka" is a Brit thing but in reality its a Brit/ Raj/ India thing:

Pukka (Hindi पक्का, Urdu پكّا pakkā) is a word of Hindi and Urdu origin literally meaning "cooked, ripe" and figuratively "fully formed", "solid", "permanent", "for real" or "sure". In UK slang, it can mean "genuine" or simply "very good".
