Uh-Oh...new owner OOPS!
Nice to be here, and awesome to be riding a Raider!
In doing the first service, I thought it was comically bad where Yamaha put the engine oil drain bolts. Can't get a torque wrench in there, or ratchet, barely a wrench. Great bike, but wow...that was funny. Hopefully all will be well there. So, then I'm putting on a set of Cobra Dragsters. I take off the first allen bolt at the header flange on the engine, that nice chrome long one. It falls from my fingers, klinks for a second, then I try to reach it, klink...I don't even hear it land this time. It's GONE. I can't find it with a telescoping magnet, flashlight...nothing. Has this happened to anyone? Where did you end up finding it...how did you get it out?
For now, I raided...ha ha...pun...I raided the drum set in the house, and got a nice, chrome 12mm screw/sleeve that works just as well, maybe better. But, I'm also worried about this thing being somewhere it shouldn't be...maybe coming loose while riding, jamming in the belt drive or something horrible.
Minor thing, but just wanted to see if anyone else out there had this happen. Yep...it was a clumsy day, as most are for me...
