Sorry. If you come into the shop on Tuesday I can see if we have some. If we don't we can order the exact OEM parts directly, and have them in a couple days.

Personally, I would try a hardware store for something that will fit. Metric, obviously, and I'd go stainless.

Wicked

Also, I think duct tape and/or super glue are approved KLR alternatives.

cycle gear sells some generic push rivets etc. Wild River Outfitters sells some of the expanding rubber well nuts.

Lowes usually has a drawer of oddball plastic screws etc.

Not sure what you actually need.

The Rubber Well Nut I think would be the technical term

We carry those in stock at the shop, because they're used in so many different bikes, not just Ducati's. If you can wait until Tuesday, and bring in an example of what you need, I'll be more than happy to help you. Ask for Mike.

Also, this "Dam Neck" place you all visit. Is it subtle enough in places that I could do some off-road training with the Dakar? I'm not looking for logs to jump, inclines to ramp, or mud holes to slop through. Just some dirt/gravel roads/trails to get a feel for off-roading, as I've never done anything more than a driveway before.

There are some open spots to it, but open is relative. It's not overly technical, but technical enough to where I wouldn't call it fire/gravel roads. That said, I know a few people that posted here as noobies and that was their first bit of dirt experience.

Offroad isn't really that difficult, I think you'll do better than you're giving yourself credit for. The Dakar isn't a pure trail bike like some of the guys here ride at DN, but it'll do most everything out there just maybe slower and with a bit more effort.

Have any of you been to the track just off of 17 on 158? Not sure who owns that but there had to be 40 bikes there yesturday. Looked like a good place to be.

Salem Church road in Gloucester was just graded. Loose gravel to practice.
