Online Source for Rivets
I was missing a Phillips-head rivet (fuel tank: 90269-06081-00 rivet) and found a very impressive website: www.partzilla.com
I selected Yamaha-Motorcycle-Year-Model-[mechanical sub-system] and then was given a free, high resolution, exploded and very detailed schematic of the sub-system (fuel tank). I then identified the part number and its associated price in the itemized inventory list. I ordered the part and a back-up and added mail delivery shipping. Yes, the price of the plastic OEM rivet was expensive... $2.32 CAD/each but I wanted a matching rivet with the rest of the rivets on the bike and then paid the shipping cost of $7.99 CAD. The rivet was a perfect match: quality, texture, dimensions, colour. Payment, processing, communication, shipping and quality was excellent.

|TTBaddog||Are the 6mm ones shown in various links the type where you can push the center portion all the way in to release and then extract the body of the pin? My Mazda has many of these plastic rivets on it and you must PULL the center pin out to have the body of the pin release. IIRC on the FJR some or many of the pins are the type where you PUSH the center all the way in to release and then you can pull the entire rivet out. This is very easy compared to the type you have to PULL the center portion out, those always end up being a PITA. Am I asking the right thing or does that make sense? One place that comes to mind is the cover that holds the battery panel in place. It is very easy to push the center rivet in the pull the hole fastener out. Pulling the center out would be a little more difficult.|

Nonsense, Ray. There is no problem that cannot be solved with a bigger hammer. In the military radar business, this
is what we used to call a fine alignment tool.
