Lost a screw, how to replace?

Just got back from my first big trip, 4,000 from San Francisco to Denver and back. But when I got back I noticed I dropped a screw somewhere? I'd love to retrace those 4,000 miles looking for it, but I don't think I have time. Where would I even find something like that?

(See attached picture for which screw).

Lost a screw, how to replace?

I got a box of metric bolts from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. Has a full range of sizes.

you could go to bike bandit and pick it out of the parts diagram or your local dealer if it's convenient.

or take the one you have to a hardware store and find something similar. alternately the right size bolt plus washer would work.

Since that one goes through a plastic piece it will have a shoulder. Just an FYI.

It is a shoulder bolt. Allen head, hex flanged.

You could probably use one without a shoulder from the hardware store, metric. Depends on how fancy you want to get.

RM ATV just get an OEM bolt and a spare when you make your next order over $75.

Did you happen to ride Mt. Evans, or Pikes Peak ?

The simplest answer, look up the part number online and call your local Suzuki dealer. It probably costs a couple dollars, will fit and match perfectly. I think you need part #09139-05074, $1.66 at Ron Ayers, maybe $2 from your local shop.

My personal OCD'ness could never deal with mismatched bolts.

Had a similar problem, only the bolts went missing while at the dealer shop for a recall.

You can order from rockymountainatv.com in the OEM parts section and wait until you have enough stuff to get free shipping.

I was able to order it through a local dealer parts department and they shipped it to the dealership for pickup for free. Still only cost less than $2 each. Insane price for a single bolt, but cheap for keeping everything together and the way it should be.

As mentioned in a previous post, those are custom bolts. An exact copy outside of OEM is likely impossible. A "close enough" aftermarket substitute will be tricky but doable depending on your tolerance for "good enough".

With almost all the hardware on the bike, there is another identical one somewhere else on the bike. Find another and test fit it to be sure, then go to your local shop or hardware store and match it up. Many hardware stores have a sizing tool of some sort, or a shop tech can match it by eye pretty reliably from the spare parts bin. Likely won't even get charged for a single too.
