I have one of those small, pre-coffee can, tail lights. My screw seems to have vaporised in to thin air... (I've found that the answer to "Why me?" is "Why not you?"

So anyway- can anyone tell me the size of that screw so I don't have to pay $10 to have one shipped?

Tail light screw size? ( R67/2)

The Parts Manual says "Front Ring with Screw". So the screw is not a separate part with a description and specs. So someone will have to remove and measure the length, diameter and thread. And how many can measure that bit of thread?

Yeah...
I'd just sorta like to not spend $8 for a 25 cent screw.
I may have to bite the bullet.

Just found out those screws are the same as the ones that hold on the tank badges.
