I'm in the process of building up a 2004 model WR450 from (many) boxes of parts.

Looking at the plastic radiator shrouds, it appears that special 'shaped' washers are used in conjuction with the bolts to mount the shrouds to the tank, but I don't seem to have them in my boxes of bits.

From what I can see in the on-line parts listings, they don't appear to be available as a seperate item to purchase (maybe they are included with the shroud), so I'm wondering if anyone has had to buy them and if so, where they can be purchased from?

According to the parts list at this link:http://www.motogrid.com/, the bolts and the bushings come as an assemby and they are not expensive, $1.25 - $1.38 each USD. Follow the prompts for Yamaha parts. When you arrive at the parts pictures, look under "side cover". Item numbers 12,13, 17 and 18.

Thanks for that - I had assumed that the ones included with the bolt were just small flat washers (they look like that in the parts diagrams), but if they are actually the shaped collar washers then that's what I'm after!
