    Fuel cap bolts

    Hi

    I just bought a used 2012 Crosstourer, where the previous owner replaced the original fuel cap bolts to red-colored ones (probably cheap ones from eBay).
    I am trying to find the correct original bolts from the catalog, and I just can't figure out the diagram. There are supposed to be 7 bolts on the fuel cap.
    I can't find these here:
    http://www.hondapartshouse.com/oemparts/a/hon/56d6020687a8660a444dae7a/fuel-tank
    I see item 33 - BOLT, SOCKET (4X25) (SUS) - but quantity is three.  :087:

    Anyone has an idea or a resolution?

    I think the 3 bolts you mention are the ones that bolt the cap to the tank, the others are short 'dummy' bolts that do nothing so I suspect they might only be available with the fuel cap. The best thing to do is measure them and replace with stainless ones on eBay. I'm pretty sure there are kits available.

    The diagram says 4x25 which is M4 x 25mm bolts, the others will be M4 x 15mm or there about.
