    Gas Cap Bolts?

    I looked down at my tank one morning and realized I'd lost one of the bolts to the gas cap - not one of the important ones that actually hold the cap on, but the decorative ones.

    Anybody got a spare?

    Doug:
    Once you find one, blue Loctite is your friend.

    I lost one too, before. They are special, big head, but small threads. You may have to go to the Honda shop if no-one can send you a spare.

    -If Buckleys cold mixture went rancid......how would anybody know????
    -Dont piss off the quiet guy with the chain saw.

              Hey Doug,

              MANY years ago, I got a neat colored kit from ProBolts (aka Tasty Bolts). I think they have the stock "brushed aluminum" look too. Here's a link to the main site: http://tinyurl.com/s5owb Perhaps you can find a US distributor. I think I have the receipt and will check when I can on where I bought my kit. It may have been a local shop as all Honda tanks had/have the same set up.

              If you come up dry on ALL your resources, give me a PM. I saved my stock bolts and can send you the one you need.


              edit: A ha! Targa should have them! http://www.targa-acc.com/ (update: or not....) hmm. They are a ProBolt Dist. Maybe a contact will get a special order?
