Plug-in nut availability

Can the plug-in nut (P/N: 46632347012) be found at an auto parts store? It's the rubberized nut that degrades with the bottom three fasteners in the top side fairing and also in the wings.

Thanks,
Jer

You might try this site. I think I paid $2.50 from the dealer a few months ago.

I have seen wellnuts in the local Lowes hardware store. Not sure if they were metric or standard thread though. I just ordered a few extra of all the various length screws, wellnuts, and clip nuts from my dealer and keep them with my bike tools. That has come in handy a few times.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I stopped in my local Lowes' this afternoon. While they had well-nuts, I couldn't find any metric ones that fit the LT.

Now I know the real life term for them.

I'm just going by what BMW calls them out of the service manual. Seems like wellnuts is a well know term for them. I'd like to have a stash of them since they seem to disintegrate.

Group buy?

Hey, if there's any demand for these wellnuts, I'd be willing to buy a gross and sell them for cost, envelopes and shipping. It couldn't run folks the $2.50 to $2.90 per pc. to replace worn, hard to deal with degenerated fasteners (I didn't say nuts ).
Any interest?
I'd get them from http://www.desmoparts.com/ducati/wellnut/wellnut.htm# at $0.50 - $0.70 per plus $5.00+ shipping (depending on weight I presume) and determine which size are the most used (4, 5, or 6mm).

These are different than the factory supplied wellnuts. The ones on our bikes come with a washer. I presume that is to prevent the rubber encased nut from spinning in the hole and disintegrating.

Have not tried the ones from Desmoparts so I don't know if that is an issue.

A split (I agree, made for a metal interface) or tooth washer (even I have a bunch of them) would do the job. I guess I should try them before asking others to take the plundge. Stay tuned.

Metric and unified threads

The unified thread sizes are cross-compatible with metric:

8-32 == M4 x 0.7
10-32 == M5 x 0.8
1/4-20 == M6 x 0.8

Those well-nuts sold at the Desmoparts site are POP brand (as in pop-rivet) parts #: B832, Q1032, EM6X1 -- 8-32, 10-32 and 1/4-20 thread respectively.

Raffy is right, they don't have the captive washer at the flange like the OEM part. The M5 version also doesn't have a very substantial flange thickness, (only about 1mm high) so fitment of the fairing panels might change slightly. I imagine you could glue a washer to it, but I'd just as soon bite the bullet and buy the OEM part from BMW.

The aftermarket well-nuts are good for other projects and farkles though! The BMR shelf, camera/ram mounts on panels, laminar lips to windscreens, etc.

I have to agree that I should stick with the OEM parts since there are differences. I was really hoping that these could be bought off the shelf of an auto parts store. My dealer may/may not have them since he's a small shop. Seems to run out of the stuff I need the day before I get there. I'll be undressing her over the next couple of days to rearrange some parts I've installed and have thought about how to do a better install, so I need them today.
Thanks for all the help,
Jer
