Nutz - Smallest wrench I own, wrong time of year, need mechanical advice
First, my heart goes out to those in Boston..!
Now to my very minor problem, at least in the grand scheme of life. Well this could have happened on the road, so I am fortunate it did not. Right clip on seemed loose on my 2007 K1200GT and I thought it was the bolt that goes into the handlebar, it has a rubber grommet it goes through and helps prevent the controls from rotating. It screws right into the forged aluminum handlebar. Yes, I snapped it right off with the smallest wrench I own. :banghead
I have big white zip tie on there at the moment and I am weighing whether or not I should ride it like this the 5 miles to the dealer? I am also wondering how they are going to remove what is left. Am I sunk and looking at buying a new handlebar? ($665!)
Any words of encouragement at an extremely busy time of year for our dealers would be appreciated. Unfortunately so would blatant honesty.
