Default Fairing Bolts

Does anyone have a picture of the bolt that fits in this hole?



My bike came with the fairings messed up and the bolts that were in the holes won't work with the Delkevic fairings I just received... I'm wondering if I have the stock bolts and need to replace them with something generic... or if I have something generic and need to go get the stock ones from Honda.

I checked the fische, but the tiny, blurry pic there doesn't mean much to me.

Usually with aftermarket fairings you have to drill out the hole, and yes, that is the bolt, I just went and looked.

Yar thats the one JP, plastic is thicker there so the non-threaded part is longer as well.

Thanks guys... The ones that were in those holes on my bike look nothing like that.

Anyone got any extras laying around before I go put my faith in ordering from the dealership and waiting a week or more for two bolts?

Can't you just go to a sears hardware or something? I needed two screws for the windscreen, and picked them up at my local Sears Hardware. Just a suggestion. I bet ordering from Honda will cost like $40 for 2 bolts (with shipping).

I checked Lowe's and didn't see any with the unthreaded portion, without that, I was a little worried about overtightening...

If I could get some measurements off the correct bolt, I could stack washers behind it to create the same lengths.

I bought that exact bolt from the Honda motorcycle dealership and they had it in stock and it was only $1.50

I just called... they said they might be able to get it by Friday... but will probably be next week.

Last time I ordered from them, it came 3 business days after they said it would be in.
