Here goes, a question. My battery side panel/cover bolts keep popping back out. Am I missing something, maybe a spring or something? How do they fit ? does anyone have a drawing or photo of the original fixings.

Hi

are your panels held on with chromed sleeve nuts or dry fasteners?

there were different panels and fastening systems in the various models, each outer panel type has to fit to the correct type matching inner panel.

If you can post a picture of what you have it would help.

Mine has those chrome sleeve nuts on the air filter side and the oddie stud fixings on the battery/toolkit side. Mine is not a brilliant fit and will tend to pop out if not seated correctly. I think the oddie studs also come in two different lengths. The Draganfly website shows the fixings pretty well.

Yep they are Oddie stud fixings. (Had to look Oddie up). They never seem to line up correctly and pop out sometimes when riding. Just dreading the whole battery panel dropping off. Should the oddie stud have a rubber on the inside of the panel to stop it vibrating out ?

I too have trouble with these, they are a devil to line up and if you carry any tool roll etc these can get in the way when putting the panel back on. I much prefer the screw fasteners used on the air filter side.

Hi...I did'nt like the oe fitting so I devised a way that would not only 'look 'right but be safe enough to keep the panels from falling of....I know it isnt a concours restoration ..more of a running reliable looking old bantam..so it wont suit everybody..comments welcomeIMG_20190915_112016439.jpgIMG_20190915_112100558.jpg

Hi Noddy-hol

I like your solution. Fortunately my oddie clips are OK so far and after reading this thread earlier I tried to pull off my side panel and they would'nt budge! Like your Bantam, mine is also not as it came out of the factory but at least it's on the road, which in my opinion is more important.

B175, on the road. Honda XBR 500, and ....... Suzuki Burgman 200 scoot! Nicknamed "The hair dryer" - by me I hasten to add; & great storage under the seat when you get to your destination.

Hi ..the main reason was the cost and pobability of failure,,,lol...2 bolts and a couple of dome nuts..works for me..and the mudguard stays and engine mounts have dome nuts so it sort of blends in.....
