When you find one, replace the grommets too. They got hard and don't grip the little tabs like they used to.

👍 Yup, good advise and also put a lite coat of silicone lube on them.

In addition to the new grommets, I epoxied a bent washer to the inside of the cover. I then put a series of zipties (2) to zip tie it to the frame. Now if either falls off, it will just flap. It's on the end closest to the rear of the bike. I made sure the washer wouldn't hit anything, and made sure the zip ties were long enough to allow me to remove the cover when I need to work on the bike. It is also short enough that it wont rest on the exhaust on the throttle side.

I almost lost my side cover yesterday. If it wasn't for me noticing that it was hanging on only one pin while the police was writing me a ticket for a California Stop I am sure I would have lost it.
I guess not losing the cover pays for buying and painting a new one.
:sneaky: 😇 :unsure: :cool::oops:

(To be fair, there was not much 'stop' in my California Stop).

Many drivers around here don't even touch their brakes at stop signs or lights!
