Question Another mystery photo

Since the last "name that photo" thread was so fun, and since I have some more unidentified parts laying around, I thought I'd challenge the masses again with another photo. These fasteners were all sitting together on a table behind the rear of the bike, which has had the rear swingarm removed and the canisterectomy performed while doing a clutch replacement. Someone (hopefully not me ) forgot to bag & tag these, but at least they were grouped together and not scattered all over the floor (unless, of course, this is an incomplete set, and one or more fasteners is scattered about the floor!)

I haven't had the chance to pore over the FM or the parts fiche yet, so I may be posting a no-brainer.

Who knows, if this is as fun as the last one, maybe I'll just start posting random macro shots of my bike (hmmm, this could get interesting, maybe an occasional shot from a Harley to throw off the gurus )

The Large ones are the bolts that hold the trunk down,or the cover beneath it. Small ones are license plate screws.

Not sure about the shorties, butt the longies may be the four that bolt down the bottom of the top trunk to the frame attachment points. These bolts are only seen when the bottom case liner is removed. I can't find mine at the moment (I am running the Ft. Worth rack) to check, butt betcha somebody will jump in here with the answer, Dave. A thought about the shorties - they may be part of the retaining strap for the top trunk lid. Good luck.

Yeah, I was gonna' say the same thing, but, um, uh, um, being that I am such a tech genius too...uh, I'd have to, uh, taste the bolts to be sure. Yeah, that's it.



(and -1 to the first goof who posts a flame response because I used "taste" and "bolt" in the same sentence!)

I think you nailed it on the larger bolts (trunk), but I think the smaller bolts are for the rear mud flap (to be removed to allow the rear wheel to come off).

Incra makes a bunch of varieties of these, I have a few flavors for woodworking. Can't remember where I got 'em, but you can see some here or here.

Dick, I like your thought about the strap...those washers are plastic, by the way. I think the trunk mount is close, but I thought the lid under the trunk takes a very similar fastener (top case=38mm long, lid=22mm on realoem.com), and these appear to be less than 1" long, which would suggest they're for the lid.

I'll be trying all this out when I get home!

The shorties hold that same cover on as well - at the front corners, on the sides.

Well, I hope you are satisfied with yourself now. Fancy posting stuff like that. Do you realise how fragile my credit card is and that now it is depleted further? Still it will come in handy soon to measure how far we can travel on on pound Sterling's worth of petrol soon.

Just pussin' through.

Mr. Kinsey wins the prize!

Of course, if Mr. Kinsey is not present or is subsequently disqualified pending the outcome of his background check, Randy came in a close second with the same answer 35 minutes later

And now, The Rest of The Story: The goofball who removed those fasteners and failed to bag & tag them was... ME!

Pretty clear example just how difficult it is to follow through with anything at the office.

Amen to that!

FYI, you might be able to save a step or two by using the Snapshot tool within Adobe Acrobat Reader - it's one of the Select & Zoom tools on the menu, or you can add it to the toolbar:
