Can anyone spare a square

Hey guys.. I have seem to have lost one of the bolts for my rear mud guard... wondering if any of you guys that have removed your read guard as a mod can spare a bolt or two??...

P.S. Try to minize the "hey cheap oh!, go buy one!." comments

I called around a few Honda shops and they want $5.00 for a bolt!... And I tried to find something similar in look to OEM and no luck so far from a few hardware stores...

I figured a stamp and envelop and donated bolt(s) would be cheaper..

Thanks guys!

It will be under the left rear foot of the beer fridge in the garage. - That is where most of my dropped bolts end up. Or in my sons bedroom - he has a habit of collecting 'spare parts' as he calls them, from my work bench. I suspect he is quietly collecting enough parts to build himself a mini-bike!

I've purchased a couple of "Screwed Industries Motorcycle Bolt" kits in the past and have to say it's great having spares. Sometimes the look isn't right, but the lengths and pitch are spot on.

You can usually get a dozen misc bolts for < $10.

I dunno if this link will work, but ( as an example ) go to ( as an example ) Jake Wilson and search for fasteners.

I was taught that stuff always fell into the oil drain pan unless you had a motor you were assembling then it fell in there.

Go to your local Honda dealer and ask if they have a "Junk drawer". I don't know if it's a good thing but my local Honda shop has one full of misc. bolts and screws

Hahahahha

That will be from rebuilds on customers bikes - there is always at least one bolt left over .........

A friend rebuilt a XL Honda motor years ago and had a jar of around 6 really important looking bolts left over before we fired it up - he started it anyway and that engine ran like a dream for years!

Plus I think the bike & car shops nick them ...... most times I've paid for a service I usually find a bolt missing - air cleaner cover bolt, side cover etc etc. I had a auto serviced on a car and they had forgotten to tighten up an entire engine mount that had to be dropped during the service! I wondered why it was shifting poorly on the way home so stuck my head under and had a look!

Just take one of the remaining bolts out and up to the hardware store. You'll find something.
