PostSubject: New battery    Sat Jan 27, 2018 3:16 pm

Ok I removed my old battery today and put a new one in.
The bad part of this story is that while putting everything back together.
I dropped the battery cover screw deep into the bowels of the bike.
I've worked on my other bikes before and it's not the first time I've done this.
Question: Do you think the screw will get caught up in a moving part?
I've never had a problem in the past.

More likely to drop out and puncture your rear tyre... if your luck is like mine!

It is very unlikely you will ever have a problem with that fastener. I cannot think of any mechanical parts it could interfere with.

Many fasteners are found in the belly pan on all Honda bikes I work on, This is where I would look for that missing fastener.

Sweep the belly pan with your long handled magnet. If you do not have a long handled magnet, you can use a strong magnet to slide along the bottom of your belly pan moving all ferrous items to an area that you can reach with your regular magnet.

Another place dropped fasteners collect is between the starter motor and the case, Sweep this area with your strong long handled magnet.

Enjoy your Bike,

It won't get caught in anything inside body area that has any moving parts.
I dropped a screw replacing windshield and with a good flashlight somehow saw it . Used a magnet and recovered it.

One time i was replacing a timing belt on an older Toyota Highlander and dropped a bolt from the belt tensioner never found it WT?. A few months later doing same job bolt fell but this time had my eyes on it. Dropped into a hole in control arm and slid down to ball joint area. Recovered with a magnet. Stupid S--t that happens at times.

On the other side of that coin, I have a baby food jar filled with "x-tra" nuts, bolts, clips. They obviously put too many on from the get go.

I managed to knock the little R-clip off the base of the gas strut while taken the engine cover off. Now that thing really is small! Luckily it only dropped about 1/2" before landing on something, phew!
