Post  Bikerbrookes on Mon Apr 01 2013, 18:29

Hello everyone!

I was in the process of replacing my throttle cables and i dropped the bloody tank pivoting nut down towards the engine.
Cant find it for the life of me, is their a common place it comes to a rest?

Or does anyone know its size?

what he said - in the front nose cone area. If your unlucky it could end up on top of the engine under the Air Filter. Check inside the fairings, namely at the 'V' part.

This is where the old magnet on a stick comes in handy. You'd be amazed what you find in there! Shocked
