    Or your dealer can look it up, order it in, and incur the shipping etc.

    Is there any way for me to order it directly after I find it?

    Start by identifying the part number, and then punch that into google (in quotes) and the various sites that supply that part will come up. European or perhaps even N/A; just chose your poison.

    Thank y’all so much for your help guys! I found the bolt, and will get it ordered in the morning.

    It doesn’t have a flat rounded head. That’s a plastic cap that fits into the bolt head. I was scratching my head for a bit on that as well.

    That makes sense, but that cap may as well have been welded on in my case. I actually thought that is what it should be, but neither flat head screw driver or pliers could get it off. I ended up tearing the whole plastic cap up, and the center piece was still firmly cemented in. I ended up having to use vice grips to unthread the actual bolt.

    Yes. That was the general consensus, so I followed the advice.

    Too late now, but a razor will slide under that edge and allow you to gently pry it out. Easy peasy once you realize what you are dealing with.

    Does this link get you past that holdup, and directly to the 19-20 790 R stuff?

    For those of you who don't wish to carry luggage, think about removing the rear rack altogether. Pulled it all yesterday because I mule whatever I carry on my person, and boy does it give the bike a new aesthetic. Baby! Very clean, mean look. If I'm thinking about a trip, it takes 2 minutes to revert back.

    I also swapped in my new EVO Husqvarna bars. I didn't realize they were as narrow as they are; I kinda like it. All the 300 muscle memory is still there, so they should feel natural. They look at 1.5" narrower, an inch lower, and a lot less sweep. Came with a few small tweaks though. The perches almost ran into trouble as they want to clamp right where the bars start fattening, but I was able to get them in just the right spots thankfully. Next were the aluminum stays for the HDB hand guards - I had to revert back to the old HDB stays I had in my parts bin from the 300. Fits like a glove. And I've decided to grind down the plastic guards so they follow the dual aluminum pieces, rather than the the way they come (rather large). If I thought my clutch cable was in a funky, twisted position before I swapped bars .. yoi (yoy?), it's a bit more so now, but no added stress at full locks.

    Rally foam 786 grips on - quite a different feel. Nothing like any grips I've had. Should be very interesting to see how they mitigate the higher RPM vibes. Should be comfortable.

    G2 - Love the precision feel! And .. it went on like a breeze! :jack

    Next up - the TCM had straight brace. But this is me every time I try any mock them into position, and consider installing them...

    Don't be afraid to remove the plastic deflectors and support bars:deal

    Be careful not to drop the screws in behind radiator (Warning in instructions) - Have the extension magnet stick handy if ya got big fingers:D

    Yeah, I've had the light assembly ripped down already to install the LED signals, and swap to a digital relay. Maybe that's why I feel a seizure aura coming on each time I walk over to assess the install. :D I'll get 'er done after I tap the bar ends for the HDB 'big bolts', and lock those down.
