View Full Version : R1200GS I think these screws fell off my bike - Help

As I as going to take my R1200GS 2005 off it's center stand today It made the usual kind of spring noise. But when I looked down there was a screw an sort of thick mesh washer and a smaller spacer that could have fit in the middle of the washer.

I'm not sure if they were there on the ground before or if they popped off when I was taking the bike off it's stand.

I am attaching a slightly blurry pic to this post.

Does anyone recognize these parts?

Is the bolt/screw a torx? If so - bet it's off the bike.. (unless you have something else that uses torx screws..)

Well, Phil? Don't keep us in suspense. Where'd they come from?

We need to know for the time we see them on our garage floors.

Thanks everyone...

It came from the sheild the protects the driver from getting burned on the exhaust/ protects the exahust pipe before the muffler. There are three schews like this that hold it in place. Mine came from the spot closest to the muffler.

Now I just got to figure how to get it back on there lol

Thanks again =)
