Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Frame Bolt Cover

Post by Pugzilla on Sat 30 May 2015, 2:31 pm

Anyone know where I can get the round silver caps that cover the frame bolts?

It's located just above the rear brake lever.

My right one has become loose and I've taken it off in case it falls off when riding. 

Would it be okay to just superglue it back on or would it cause trouble down the road?

Thanks for the info!

Would these be suitable?

That looks like them, as mentioned in that thread they are a very tight fit but they do go in.

43mm ones are a perfect fit, at £1.60 for 4 they're a much better value than the OE ones. Very Happy
