plastic rivets

I've have read a few times now that some poeple are having problems with the plastic rivets on the busa/GSXR-1000. Do not try to peel them out...push the centerpin in a 1/4 " with a scribe or very small screwdriver first...then pull the whole thang out

And to think, when I first read this thread I couldn't imagine me needing to remove them before I got ready to do my paint job. Heh! I decided to snatch my rear reflectors today and whatta ya know? I had to pull the dang rivets to get the reflectors off. You dudes are lifesavers with all these tips and stuff.

I dunno. Haven't looked for any yet. Some here say they got replacements from Home Depot. Don't know if they're the same rivet or just the same size, though. Maybe somebody that knows where to get 'em will weigh in soon.

They are about $1.30 at the Susuki dealer. I bought a dozen of the buggers.

I second this.  I lost one while disassembling (found it later), went to the dealer, he only had six in stock so I took them all.

Replaced 2 of them already cause they were pretty bent up!






Damn, didn't see this topic is over 2 years old....LOL
