small but missing

Not my grey matter but the small plastic retainer "bolt" that keeps the entire rear plastics/seat assembly on the bike, that you push out ...has hopped it's arse away somehow...

Anyone have extras? Just need one..

I'm sure someone will have one.
But just in case you can source alloy replacements - I'm pretty sure that a forum sponsor posted up a price on these recently in the for sale section. Sold in pairs.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Put a 4mm screw in there with a lock nut, in the meantime at least.

Like Dons said, use a small bolt but instead of a nut get a rubber cap. That is what I have and it does the job well

yea, I thought about just sticking a bolt in there/nut but I remove the tail often. But now that all my mods are done I might just do that. Thanks.

Thanks R1Andrew, I ended up just getting the metal ones. I figure this way they are wired together it will never happen again.

First thing one should do is throw that piece of rubber away. Then drill the pins and put a clip through it, use a cable tie on em or safety wire them.
