Hey guys, my spark plug inspection door came off mid ride today the screw's gone, might be a bit of a silly question from a zero diy skills guy but does anyone know the screw size?

Cheers

Hi, I was just checking workshop manuals and parts list from wiki page.
I looked up for my LX 50 and it says the screw is 'M4, 2x13' but I can't find the one in LX 125 manuals.

I assume they are compatible.

Cheers

yes they are the same in the 50 to 150, plus almost any sheet metal screw should work for the acess door.

I pulled mine from my LX to offer help. It looks like a #8 X 1/2" sheet metal screw W/Phillips Head painted black.
If I lost mine I would go to ACE and get stainless steel.

Sorry, you need to make a close Metric conversion-still available at ACE.
Possibly purchase two sizes close to #8 or take the tap clip off and take it along.

the connector for the screw has no threads so it wont matter if it is a metric or standard screw. you need a small sheet metal screw, since it has no threads. you could also take off the clip the screw goes into and take it with you to the store.
