PostSubject: Tupperware screw   Fri Nov 15, 2013 6:06 pm

I was tidying up the Swing for storage: took battery out, seat off, and sprayed a lot of WD40. I was trying to take the cover off from the area under the seat. I did not have my manual handy, so I gave up and put everything back on. I was putting the screw back on next to the seat strut when it slipped off and disappeared into the abyss under it. I heard it clang but did not find it on the floor. I moved the bike around and tapped and tried to dislodge it. No sign of that screw. I have to find a replacement. I am wondering if there is anything under the covers that could be damaged by a loose screw.
Any suggestions on retrieving the screw, and also on replacement ?

It's probably sitting on top of the Throttle Bodies.

Suck it up, remove the seat Under Cover & retrieve it. If nothing else you'll be able to see where the idle adjustment screw is located (for future reference) and distinguish that phillips head screw location from the two (Do Not Adjust) straight-slot Throttle Body Air Adjustment Screws.

Thanks, Cosmic_Jumper. I am all for retrieving it. I saw the 4 screws and tabs that hook on to the centre cover. But something else seems to be holding the cover . Am I missing something ?

You've got to free the two fuse blocks from their slots (use a small flat blade screwdriver to free the fuse block catches) and then flex the rear section of the seat Under Cover so that it pops out from under the left & right Side Body Covers and the Luggage Box. The front fuse block lifts up thru the slot then can drop down thru that slot, while the rear fuse block lifts up then the wiring & block slides out thru the slot in the Under Cover side. There are also locating tabs on the Under Cover that kind of help locate the Under Cover to the "Floor Step" (tunnel cover).

It's a bit more of a PITA to reinstall the Under Cover correctly than it is to remove it.

Thanks for the heads-up. I will give it a go when it warms up here.

Cosmic_Jumper -Your instructions were spot on. Found that little screw wedged behind the foot peg assembly. I had to remove the right footpeg to find it. All back to normal: however, I found the bottom bolt on the footpeg assembly is stripped. Will have to be replaced. Oh well.
Thank you for the tips.
