Changing out the plastic from white to yellow on my '14. Going to re-use the upper shrouds and just rivet them to the new yellow intake cover. Anybody know what size rivets Yamaha uses? Just want to make sure I get the exact right size.

Thanks.

Sure, but why pay that much for a $.05 rivet, know what I mean?

In case anybody else needs to do this, I would recommend a 3/16" dia rivet and I'm using ones that are 3/16-1/4" grip. They do really need a backing plate (washer) on the backside. The stock ones appear to be 4mm, so I just drilled the holes out to 3/16".
