Re: Replacement Rubber Expansion Nuts for the Side Panels?
Confession: I just finished a complete tune up and service after 20K riding this year so far, and since I was tearing it apart, all the tupperware off, and needing two new radiators. I bought 10 of the blind rivet nuts for $6.20 (ouch). Took my time since the weather was nasty for riding and while putting it all together yesterday replaced a few that were bad, and 7 that were missing that I had put 'other' things in to secure the fairing. (two were zip ties!)
Today, rode about 170 miles to test out the radiators and other repairs, and the first thing I noticed was how much quieter it was-guess after nearly 200K the rattles had become part of the ride for me. I liked the new ride today better. I have tried the cheap ones, and just didn't work for me. Glad they do for others.
And when you need radiators, Beemer Boneyard was there. Appreciate their quick shipping and nice product.
And where would we be without Kirk's videos for any reference we might need for service. Thanks!
