Re: Where can I get those plastic rivet thingies that go on
i tried searching for those (in the right size) at lowes, home depot and osh. I never found the right size (stock in stores were too big). granted $25 for the ebay auction is a bit much, but when you find out shipping is $6-$8 bucks at ronayers, and theyr'e about $1.26 a pop a ronayers, the ebay one seems cheap because you get all the other bolts too.
i also tried to look for them at kragen; they also didn't have the right size.
if you use a aftermarket tail, you may lose some because if you press down on the tail, the rivets pop out. found this out the hard way when i accidently press on my sharkskinz superbike tail at the last trackday.
Hi i needed these and found them at www.motorcyclefasteners.co.uk, they also have an ebay shop and seem to be ran by bikers which helps.
I got a kit from them which consisted of the 3 sizes used on Gixxers.
hope this helps
