Tank bag front screws
« on: August 13, 2018, 09:40:31 AM »
Hi everyone, I purchased a used tank bag from a forum user about 3 weeks ago that was meant to be complete but the front screws (that hold the L-shape brackets at the top of the tank by the ignition) we’re missing and that means that it is unusable.

The member in question said that he had posted the screws over a week ago and in good faith I have been trustingly waiting (not much else I could do)

Called BMW and the screws is question are not sold separately and the whole mounting kit costs £25 which I would really like to avoid and they have no information as to what type of screws they are

Could anyone that has a tank bag provide any info on the screw size so that I could try to find replacement?!

I would really appreciate any help and would be very grateful.

Please see photo for the screws in question

I could really use some help guys, I’m really not looking forward to spend another £25 on a full set of mounting brackets just for 2 screws.
I’ve tried a few sizes I have at home and none fit, either too big or too small
