Nut or Screw - Brutale 750 instrument cluster support

My left hand side switch arrived so I thought I'd spend a few minutes getting the bike in order for the weekend. Unfortunately, as is always the case, when the light is fading, that's when things go wrong.

So I got my stock mirrors back on (yes, I got a warning for having bar ends ??? can't understand it, but ... better be on the right side of the law), got the switch on, tested all working, and the last step was to put the instrument cluster cover back on - 'plonk', the rubber nut support broke, fell on the ground bounces into my gravel driveway, and now I can't find it. There goes my weekend ride.

Anyway, so off I went to Star Twin, but, all is not well, I've lost a rubber thing with a brass nut inside of it, whilst Star Twin parts catalogue call it a screw/bush.

part no 6.

I'm fairly certain that's what I've lost, it's the nut end of the support for the instrument cluster cover on a Brutale 750. I still have the screw that it's goes onto. Is part no. 6 a nut or a screw?

Who moved my cheese?

Yes, it should be, I'm just wondering why the parts catalogue would call it a screw?

I think their calling the rubber part a bush, and it comes with a screw, hence the description "BUSH, SCREW..."

You could probably go into any bike shop and pick an m4 wellnut to replace the one you lost.

Thanks George, it definitely will do the job, and actually I've learnt something new as well, what a 'wellnut' is :-).

There are two of them on the steel bracket, I've only lost one. Definitely a nut.

The screw is as per part no 9 in the pic below.

Should have read more carefully.... Yep, and I've got a hand full as well. Available in quantity from McMaster-Carr and others for very little money.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
