Missing Screw on Engine

I’m pretty sure I have a missing screw on the right hand side of the engine. Please see the photos.

Anyone know what size those screws are?

Thanks!

Re: Temp Issues

Kinda Piggy backing on this topic...... 78' gl1000 I had a small leak in my radiator (bike worked fine before then) had it replaced (also had a front fairing put on at the same time) and now the bike heats up fast. I can ride on the freeway just fine the moment I wait at a light on the exit the temp...

Radiator puncture and battery issue

Alright well 2 issues... First- I was trying to put on the bracket for the front fairing for my 78'. Turns out while I was finagling the bracket up past the radiator I punctured it and coolant came spitting out of a teeny tiny hole. Any suggestions on how to repair this without replacing the entire ...

Broke a screw

As you will see in my picture, I am pointing at a screw. Well I was tightening that screw and then BAM it broke. Well not really BAM but it snapped.

How in the hell do I get a broken screw out?

I am not sure if it broke at the head or the thread. Any tips would be very helpful!

Thanks!

Coolant all over the place

Well I am a new owner of 78 GL1000 that my wife purchased for me for a wedding present (clearly she is a keeper). This is the first bike I have owned. Last night my neighbor and I were putting in some fuel/carb cleaner in the gas tank and letting the bike run a little to work the cleaner through. In...
