Front mudguard screw size
« on: May 19, 2018, 07:49:43 »
So I knackered the front mudguard screw trying to take it out (which I've still not yet managed),  assuming I can get it out with a combination of hammering swearing and sweating, I'll need a replacement. What's the size of this screw so I can source a replacement? I did a quick Google for DL650 mudguard screw and only got one hit for 8.50 which seems extortionate, so anyone know what best to search for or where I can get a cheaper/better version?

Found it, have to go with Americanism of f e n d e r.

It's 09139-06131 which is an M6 screw with a 3mm shoulder. So turns out I have some M6 screws left over from my GSXR but they don't have the shoulder... Will that work?

The point of the shoulder is to allow the bolt to tighten without crushing the plastic - the shoulder takes the strain. Just be careful no to overtighten.
Seems pearl asbo orange is faster after all....

I had to take my front mud guard off and the 2 screws holding it on were seized up. Had to saw 1 of off
The plastic that holds the plate is toast
So am going to use stainless bolt, locking nut and washer, when I put it back together next week

If you cut a short length of copper 8mm central heating pipe and slip it over the bolt it will protect the mudguard. I used some aircraft SS pipe and it is brill.
