Default i SCREWED up!

I recently had the bike apart to paint it and change the air filter, spark plugs. When all was back together I had these two screws left over. They don't appear to be very strong so perhaps not structural in nature.

Any ideas where they could go? I really don't want to take everything off again!

$5.00 to the first person to correctly identify them.

did you have side fairings off ? if so it could be screws to the front plastic behind your front wheel. there are i think 2 philips screws just like that.

so could be 2 spots... airbox or front plastic behind front wheel...

I think those are the 'bush' screws. They're the ones you toss in the bush! Just kidding... you can laugh about it later, after you figure it out for real!

Nice guess. As you can see in this pic, the screw from the airbox is the one on the right. It is a coarse thread. The screws left over are fine threaded.

Good guess. There are four screws and two plastic insert screws on the front plastic behind the wheel. They are all there.

Now it's $10 to the first person to correctly identify them!

Nope. Those are longer and have a black washer to go with them. These screws are shorter and I didn't find any extra washers.
