Is it just me (or my bike) but does anyone else find it a pain getting the right side belly pan fixing on?  :157:

The nut is really tricky to get into place, hold AND turn the screw. I tried my smallest stilson but I couldn't get it into the space and get the right angle. My solution in the end was to use BluTac Glue Spots! I stuck one onto my fingertip and put the nut onto it. That allowed me me to position it behind the hole in the belly pan while I screwed it in with my other hand.

Don't try that with Superglue though kids!  :005:

Next week: How to make an exhaust pipe out of a Fairy Liquid bottle and some sticky back plastic... :155:
What a long strange trip it's been...

 :435: Reading through these posts there seems to be a hell of a lot of references to male female crossovers.  :005:  Thinking I might join the Honda 50 Forum, For a more masculine chat line, Just a mo whilst I loosen this corset. Ah thats better, now where was I.   :084: :084:
