    tupperware screws

    I have a 2003 R1150RT. Could someone please tell me the correct location for the long and short screws that hold the tupperware on. I've had it off several times and I don't know the correct place for them.
    Thanks

    There are four long ones. One goes behind the mirror and the other three go in the cast aluminum piece that holds the foot pegs.

    +1, except on the right footplate you're better with a short screw in the rear-most position due to a shallow hole depth.

    Incomplete and not quite accurate:
    Two of the "longest" screws (given that you have 2 lengths) go behind the mirrors, into the flat areas that "hang" the forward part of the tupperware.
    The other two go into the dash panel, below the speaker locations.
    The right rear footplate location hasn't been an issue for me.
    On some oilheads, I've seen that the right rear hole along the top of the gas tank (rear-most of the three along the curve) may prefer a shorter screw, the ~ 1/2", due to either a lack of insert tap depth, or manufacturing tolerance buildup and/or plastic distortion over the years.
