Saddlebag Stay Acorn nuts/hardware

Post by Sig45227 »



I've been unable to find a site selling the Hardware to attach the rear saddlebag stays. It's been quite a while since I took the bent one off my bike and cannot locate my Hardware. I did however find some part numbers online and took a screenshot. Let me know if you have a good source. Thank you

Just called a Honda dealer they said the part was $11 and some cents oh, the only problem is those have been discontinued and no number referencing a new part.

McMaster Carr has them in stainless steel, or chrome plated steel. And for that price you can get a bag full.

This acorn has a stepped diameter that extends a bit guiding both crash bars where they mount to the shockstud.

If Honda no longer makes them, your only options are the used market or make new ones. Do you have a sample to measure?

I have the nut from the other side yes. Wish I had a metal lathe.
