Airbox well nuts

Hi guys

Does anybody know the size of the well nuts where the airbox bolts to the bike ? I don't mean the 4mm trim covers.

Thanks in advance, George

I just remembered because I used my last one's on Brett's Senna and almost all my 4 and 5mm one's too. Time to order these damn overpriced things again.

Dons I think he talks about the hexagonal well nuts which go between the air box and the frame.
Could be M6 but the hexagonal shape is might finding them even worst.
Just saying.

You use regular wellnuts Ralph (I always have done this !?), the shape of the airbox "hole" turns then into hex looking wellnuts.

That being might true Donsy.
But I ordered a few of the OEM hexagonal bits from Startwin a while ago to fit the CF airbox..
And so I know that they come originally like that.

Never too old or too ugly to learn Ralph, thanks for that. I must say the M6 tightens up just fine. I'll see if Richard can include a few of those you mentioned in his order from Andre and check them out. Thanks good man.

Those are the ones I'm talking about. But if the 6mm tightens up I'll use those, there more readily available.

Thanks guys

Check ebay, I found bags of them on there (actually stamped wellnut branding) for a decent price. Got it down to about $1.40 each.

That is why I was kind of passing them around a while back, I had bags of like 50 of the 4mm and 5mm ones.
