Oh crap, screw left over (XRR)

19 posts in this topic

Just put my XR650R back together and, naturally, I got a bolt left over. I'm going riding tomorrow morning.

It's a fairly distinct bolt, I'm counting on you guys to tell me where it goes.

It's M6, 10mm head, embossed "7", has a spring washer that wont come off.

Here are the specifics (bolt no. 5):

No, that's definitely not the one.

I have a bad vibe about this, I'll report back after the ride if I'm still around. :applause:

Looks like it could be one of the two bolts that holds the front of the tank on?

On second thoughts, the tank bolts are longer than that and the washer is wider.

Dunno what it's from. Sorry.

What all did you take apart?

Everything but the engine.

Rode it today, nothing fell off. I'm hoping it might be from another bike, my garage can get messy. Only other japanese bike around that would use this type of bolt is my wife's CRF230... it sure ain't from my vintage Maico or BMW.

Well that narrows it down. :applause:

Doesn't look familiar to me and I have taken apart the rear shock, subframe, removed the front forks, seat, tank, pipe, header, radiators, bars, wheels, spokes, calipers, valve cover, cam and skid plate. It might be a replacement bolt for a lost stock bolt. If that is the case, then I have no clue.

All I can think of is the side covers or the rear fender. That or a sub frame bolt but those don't have washers do they?

One of the bolts that holds the rear fender to the subframe? Pretty sure (one!) of mine is like that...

it deffinetlly looks like it holds something on (no duh hunh). I mean speciffically like a seat bolt or a tank bolt, or it could be the bolt that holds on the right side plastic. Look around see whats loose or has an unoccupied hole. Like Im sure you havent done that already. Good luck

The thing is it has an integrated lock washer. That can't be meant to be used on a plastic fender or side cover. It has to be a structural bolt holding metal parts together.

I looked over every inch of the bike again today and can't find it.

The only ones I remember with the attached washer are the seat bolts. Or, could be one of the bolts that hold the airbox on. You'll miss it eventually.

That's not a lock washer but rather a conventional flat washer used to spread the clamp load out and lower the contact pressure. Perfect for bearing against soft/breakage-prone plastic.

No, it IS a lock washer. Im looking at it. It is a washer thats split open to lock the screw when compressed.

Seat bolts are bigger, M8, not M6 like this one.

I give up. Thanks to everyone trying to help.
