Got help -no longer urgent-

So I had the time of my life at what America calls a dealership and the screw holding my shifter vanished after my visit.

About 2 hours later the lever came off... (that's when I realized)

My question since Suzuki dealerships are basically non existent in the next 8-10 hours of riding.... Can I really use a regular screw bought at a hardware store?? Or is that part the same as other brands of motorcycle?

Kinda nervous about messing up the grooves...

You should be able to replace it with something from a hardware store. If there is a Lowes around, they have a nice selection of metric hardware. Good Luck.

Probably 33
I lost mine
replaced with a hardware store screw but longer and I added a nut to prevent further loss. I usually blue loctite everything. Maybe I forgot the last time I was fiddling with the shifter. It's been known to happen.

If you are talking about #30, then you are in trouble. Blue locktite is your friend, and I cannot understand what it is about the 1000 models losing shift lever screws. If it is #30, you will have to persuade a dealer to take one off a bike on the floor, I highly doubt they will have one in stock.

Thanks guys! I stopped at Amarillo's awesome ktm dealership (used to be a Suzuki too) and they sold me two bolts, the oem version and a longer one just in case.

And you're right, it's a pretty standard bolt.

Whew!

It was number 33

Unless you want to ride Mtn bikes in Palo Duro Canyon, and then it's pretty cool...
