Question about Screws

The Brake and Clutch Covers, are they Phillips Screws or some other cross point screw?

I know that the 'Phillips' screws on most Japanese bikes are not. They are actually JIS screws, Japanese Industrial Standard.

Re: Question about Screws

A few dealerships have micro phish on line for the K1200LT.

I use the one on MAX BMW's site.

Re: Question about Screws

They are Phillips. I keep a cross point screw driver from my first Subaru (71) around just for those Japanese screws.
