Yesterday I got done with a ride and noticed a little shiny thread sticking out right where I've circled. I then lightly shook the plastic around this area and out popped a bolt!! I have no idea where it came from. I'm sure the answer here is "it could be one of many bolts", but maybe there is only one or two you guys know of that fit the description... Thanks in advance if anyone has an idea, I'm currently scanning through the body section of the manual. This is an '04.

The bolt is stainless, 19mm long and 6mm in diameter, there is NO threadlock used, standard bolt head (not hex head or phillips/slot head).



Note: the bolt fell from this opening, so it should be from somewhere close.

Looks like the 10mm that holds the plastic exhaust covers on. You have 4 of them in the tail section.

I think it may have held something plastic, but it fell from near the tank cover. The only reason I'm asking for answers and not taking my fairings off is because I'm at work now, it'd be sweet to know before I go home what to remove, save some time before I go watch local drag racing, vrooom vroom... yeah OctoberFest!!!

You also have two bolts on the bottom of your gas tank cover. Would be closer to where you found it. The bolt is pretty common on the bike. T

Just remembered those are allens. They are the big black allens. Subframe has some on it. Any work done to the bike? FE, fairings removed.

The metal crossbrace at the end of the tank under the front seat.

Those have nuts on them. Shouldn't come off unless you have had the subframe off.

weird... well dang, I guess it's comin' apart when I get home then. Should be obvious once I get the plastic off. I haven't taken these off yet, and chances are I'll find I'm missing a nylon lock nut on the other side of where ever this thing came from.. Maybe it fell from the sky and, nevermind. But this most likely has a nut partner rather than threading into the frame, because any metal-metal connection would have threadlock showing on the bolt

Thanks you guys for your input, I got a few leads now, so ultimately the thing's coming apart tonight so I can find it, unless someone knows exactly where a 19x6mm bolt fits near the tank I'll just guess and check.

That bolt doesn't hold anything plastic, all plastic is held with allen head screws. It might be the cross brace under the seat or maybe a bolt in the tank. there are 4 and the front one are bigger than the rear ones, if it is a 10mm head it would be the rear if it is one of those. good luck

Going on a few things. The bolt should not be able to come off if your seat is on, plus the cross bar nuts coming off would be rare, they are on pretty tight, but it is 4 years old, so you never know. I am going to guess tank bolt. One of the mounting ones to the tank on the side. From working on the bike I don't remember Honda using thread lock on any of the bolts. Yamaha uses this stuff like it's all that is holding the bike together. T
