I need to buy those metal things that are threaded and go over a fairing tab so you can thread a bolt into it. Basically held in place with friction until the bolt is inserted. I lost one from the fairing on my GL1800

Anyone know where I can buy one?

True value or Ace hardware have an isle devoted just to nuts bolts and fasteners like these.

You can also find plenty of them at any local junkyard.

I agree with the Fasten-al and also any decent hardware would have them. They are called speed nuts. Some are generic as they will take a tapered type screw and some have the threads in them and are size specific.

Tinnerman nuts, as already mentioned they're available in decent hardware stores, on line or at aircraft supply stores.

If they're off of the top shelter tabs its a dealer only part. Honda's tabs are metric and are of a specific length to fit the tab and mate up with the hole. Ive tried Ace and True value and ive never found one that matches up that will work. Maybe your luck will be better.

Thanks everyone.

I was not successful at hardware stores but my long-time motorcycle fixer guy had a gigantic collection.
