Extra parts! Help please!

I have had the old girl tore down for the last couple of months and started to put her back together again. The problem is I don't know where one particular fastener and its nut go. I had all them taped but the tape came off this one and I can't for the life of me figure out where it goes.

It is about an M6 or so, 15mm long, #30 torx, and looks to be quite shiny compared to the other torx fasteners on the bike. The bike is an O2.

I had all the tupperware off, including both lowers and air dam, upper fairing, radio bezel, stingray, instrument cluster and the battery side cover.

I replaced both springs, added motolights, changed the filters among other things.

If anyone recognizes this I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

Re: Extra parts! Help please!

Rick,
Check the tip over wings underneath? Also, one that gets missed is under the mirror. Check the archives for "TUPPERWARE PARTY" I tried to up load the file but it was too big

Re: Extra parts! Help please!

If you had the nose off look behind the map light. There is one that holds the top of the instrument cover which you almost need a mirror to see and is accessed by removing the instrument panel map light.

Re: Extra parts! Help please!

I've got the ones under the tipover wings and regular tupperware. I've already got the one behind the map light in. They are #25 Torx, this is a #30. I hope I don't find out where it went the hard way, like something going seriously wrong! Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: Extra parts! Help please!

from memory.....

Those things are in the nose (under the front turn signals) , a few places under the main fairing, and under the battery cover. To be honest, there are several places, but its a body fastener...

I know that is no help... but there is my two cents.

It is the only chrome type torx that came off. You are right, the rest are black, and #25 torx M5. This is chrome...ish, #30 torx, and M6 I think.

The 4 bolts (2 on each side) that fasten the panniers to the bottom of the rear subframe do have those clips on the inboard side, but the bolts themselves are black hex head. At least they were on the two LTs I've worked on ('05 and '09).

Re: Extra parts! Help please!

They put way too many parts on anyway. There's suppose to be extras!

I usually find where it (they) go the next time I undress her.

Anyway, "what could possibly go wrong?", it's just a small gasket leak!

Re: Extra parts! Help please!

you said you had the battrey box side cover off.i have never disassembled the battery box area mabey it,s stainless steel. the only reason i can think of to take the speedy clip off is if it was in the way of your work(scrapeing on your hand etc)if you rember why you removed the clip you will know where it goes.
i have never taken a clip off so far

Re: Extra parts! Help please!

I think I have it figured out. It seems that the previous owner was missing a rubber well nut that was holding the lower fairing on and he simply replaced it with a metal slip-on nut and torx screw. I will replace it with a new well nut and all will be good.

Thanks for all of the suggestions.

Well cool. My '05 is stripped down even further than yours was and I just spent the last 30 mins looking for that screw. I only found two #30 screws on the whole bike, both on the ABS brake line bracket on the left side. One had a clip like yours but the screw was 35mm long and the other had a nut on the backside, not a clip.

Re: Extra parts! Help please!

Actually If no others have solved this one.. as you say this is a larger torx.. Did you check the fastners that hold the stingray ( radio compartment) onto the bike.. the 2 top most are certainly that color and size on my LT..
