    Unfortunately, it has been determined that 10mm is too big.

    Stupid Clips

    SWCI - Silver Wing Community Italia - Silver Wing - SW-T400 - Il sito ufficiale della Community - I curiosi chiodini o fermagli

    The above link is written in Italian. After looking at the page for what seems an eternity it dawned on me how to operate the fastener. Followed the illustrations and it worked like a charm. To me the fastener operates in a counter intuitive way and that is why it's a PITA.

    My bike has a couple of them in it's gut, waiting to melt one day (if they don't fall out...)

    I looked at Procaliber - #3.13 each. That's CRAZY!!!!!!

    Any ideas on a good place to buy or recommended substitute? I am sure I am not the only "klutz"

    I am talking about the Part number 90683-GAZ-003. #22 in this link:

    Thanks!

    I've used this type screw type in automotive applications and found them short lived compared to the OEM fasteners used on the NC700. After a few uses the screw doesn't unscrew and you resort to prying it out with a knife and/or screwdriver.

    Same with me, unfortunately.

    Even the OEM Honda one on my CBR125R battery box cover that is similar to that style, has gone all fubar. The kind you have to turn mit der screw driver is a fail, in my book.

    Thanks anyway JoeZ! Good on ya for keeping your eyes peeled for such stuff

    This Trim Clip is new to me on any Honda I've owned and took about a minute before understanding its' operation. It IS slippery to handle, as mentioned.
    Lifting the center 'tee' above flush before reinstalling the clip took me awhile to figure out. Luckily I've not broken or lost one in the bowels of the bike......yet.

    Learning something every day. Unfortunately I just ordered a pack. I guess I'll just keep'em as emergency spares?
