Dont forget a touch of the blue loc-tite. Looks like that's why you lost it in the first place? Bolt vibrated loose?

Check out the last two posts #23 and 24, they relate to your situation.

same thing happened to me on the 2000, I lost 2 of them on that bike...
loc-tite the bolts for sure and a lanyard could help too.

Is that the same as losing you ass at the craps table?

Been there....I have a "spare" lid too.

Yep. uno. But since you're right there...
I found two more that needed tightening and loc-tite. see the two bolts that connect the tail-light bracket. There kinda hard to see, not the cap nuts holding the tail-lights. Where the tail bracket meets the inner sub-frame, those nuts vibrated loose on my bike. They dont even grab a full width, so I loc-tite those too.
