Help us out................ what exactly did you take apart?

First guess is screws to attach the seat.

You're out of my realm, I'm a totally stock guy. I'm sure someone will know.

Maybe some of the stock skid plate bolts, look too small to be the seat bolts

It saddens me to know that you have been thinking about my post for a month.

But, I respect your response.

In the spirit of your post I even went ahead and washed my bike inside and out, so as to begin some preventative maintenance tasks:

Safari tank?

Has anyone heard what's going on with the Safari tank for our WR? Haven't been able to find one for over a year now.

Look like the bolts that hold the rear fender to the subframe, but then again, bolts all look pretty much the same.

little about me, I'm 5'8 and 200lbs. is the bike to big for me?
It's full adjustable, turn the dampening anti-clockwise a couple of clicks and loosen the spring

Good to know you can run these bikes like you do and they keep working. Makes me feel better about not worrying about the high-mileage replacement stuff. I actually don't mind working on the bike and like to give it a quick powerwash after muddy rides. For me, it's easy to do and I like being able to see what parts are missing, need replacing etc. Gives me something to do in the evenings. I'm just about over that "aw I scratched it phase", and more into the "watch this shit" phase. It's much more funner now.
