An embarrassing first
I've been wrenching on cars since I was old enough to walk as my dad was a professional mechanic.
I'm pretty dang good at taking things apart and putting them back together.
So imagine my dismay when I went to change the air filter today and when I'm done I have two 4mm shoulder screws with the "big" head sans flange left over. That's a first for me - I've never had any parts left over. So I went back over the panels with a careful eye:
The three in the side tank cover are there -
the front one on the side strip panel under the seat is there,
the two on the top that holds the front/top tank strip are there.
The two holding the front tank bracket are there.
So where the hell do these two go? I looked at the xploded diagram in the service manual in section 9 where it describes how to take the frame stuff off and I'll be dipped if I can spot any I missed.
So I'm humbly asking for someone to restore my dignity by figuring out where these two cursed screws go.
