Question Screw Garu's. Where does this one fit ?

Removed the plastic ( sides; top & bottom, and lower front ) to clean Jenna properly the other day and the 10mm screw shown in photo #1 fell out. Doesn't seem to be a panel screw (12mm #2 photo) as it has a different length and no point/cone start to the thread. Fell out from towards the front on the left hand side. Know it's not from the plastic as they are all in place.
TIA

That one looks like the center screw where the mirrors attach. The 3 mirror studs and a center screw attached to the sub-bracketry.

I might be wrong. I believe the one I mentioned has a pointed end. But check anyway. If not that, I am wondering where as well.

Another guess: Could be one of the screws that retain the fan shrouds. I don't remember if those were Torx or Hex screws on my bike from the factory, I had replaced them with Torx if they were not already.

Smile Screw Loose

Thanks for the clues. I guess I can remove the plastic again and explore. I was just hoping it was not from under the nose cone. That comes off after returning from the CCR. Cheers

Service drop?

Something else to think about. If it's been service by anyone but you ........

Sometimes a tech will drop a screw... It's easier to just grab a new one than to go after the one that was dropped. Especially if it fell into the "hell" zone. You may have an extra screw now...

Murphy's law of reproduction. You know when you take something apart and then put it back together, you sometimes have a piece left over.. Murphy says if you do that enough times you'll have two of them....

Don't fry your brain worrying about it....

I would also say the fan shrouds but on my 02 there is also a washer on it and it is a hex head.

Smile Screws, Washers, and now Plugs

Had a good look around today under the plastic. Not the fan shroud screws as they are in place (easy to see from the exhaust end, and just to note, they have pointy ends) Looked long and hard under the nose cone area with a small mirror, but nothing obvious. Might just be that one fell down during assembly as per previous post. Time will tell. Whilst taking off the rear tail light assembly a double washer (joined together when electroplated) fell out and I'm quite sure it doesn't belong in there! We are talking about a brand new bike here, and so it should be as good as it gets. Per factory QC.
I did notice that I have an extra electrical conector adjacent to the #2 injector. Cable length would only allow to reach to #2. Same as the ones on the injectors. Any ideas anyone? (I thought may be due to differences in country specifications)

US specification LTs with the Charcoal Cannister under the trunk use that connector for the solenoid valve to the vacuum lines to the throttle bodies for cannister purging.

And if you hook that connector to an injector, the bike will run like crap (DAMHIK)
