On the ST3 there are two different types of "nuts" used. There are the rubber well nuts and there are two of the metal clip type nuts. Which ones?I recently had the fun experience of reattaching the spring that holds my left mirror together after accidentally knocking it off. Thanks to the advice on this board everything went together fine.
That was the first time I had removed the windshield and pulled the instrument cluster/dash panel off my bike. In the process I lost a couple of the "nuts" (or whatever you call them) that the screws attach to when I reassembled the pieces. I half-assed replacements but it got me thinking about alternatives.
Does anyone have recommendations for decent replacements for the fasteners? They seem kind of cheesy and I know I will be going throught this process many more times in the future.
As always...thanks to all the guru's on this board for their sage advice!
The rubber well nuts can be bought on line as mentioned and I've also found them at Lowes. They actually are more than just a nut. They are also a flexible barrier that allows things to flex and move a bit without breaking. The metal clips can also be found at Lowes.
