  • Looking for a part number

    I was washing the bike this evening and a part I assume is a weld cover pulled apart. Here are pictures. Does anyone know the part number or at least which part in the OEM listing has it? I looked for about 20 minutes and gave up. I think it just glues on, but I'm not sure. It's still connected somehow at the top and I don't want to take the seat off tonight.

    If memory serves, that part (weld cover) swivels on a rivet on top of the frame. It came loose on my '04 but I never did anything with it because it always folded right back in. I'll look and see if I can find a separate part number for it.

      See this:

      and look for parts 29 and 12. I THINK that is it.

      Here is a pic of that plastic rivet:

        That looks like it. Thanks! If it's being held on by a bead, and only looks like a glue strip separated, I may just use a strip of double-sided tape on the underside and reseat it.

          I know what you are talking about but not sure of exactly what it is. I assume that any silicone sealant that doesn't harden would work the same. You could probably use the same stuff you use to caulk the bathtub.

            Or the outside caulk I used to put in a new dryer vent. It dries clear in case any seeps out on me.

              Mine moved on my then 2013F6B. I used 3M automotive trim tape. If you look that is how it's held in place to begin with.

                Interesting. I haven't had a need to repair my 2012, but on my '04 it looked like it was held in place with a small bead of butyl rubber (reminds one of putty on a roll). However, that stuff is nasty in that it stains everything it touches and doesn't clean up easily.

                  Mine has flipped around like that ever since I've owned this bike. It hasn't slowed me down any so It must be okay.

                    The 3M trim tape worked like a charm. Thanks!
