While putting in a new battery one of the battery terminal screws fell thru one of the openings directly behind the battery and disappeared. Could it have fallen somewhere where it will cause any damage or problems?
I have taken a couple of them apart and found lost battery screws but no damage.My concern is that the screw could have ended up wedged under the fuel tank where it could rub against the tank eventually creating a leak. Anyone who has actually disassembled the 650 know if this is possible?
The battery leans back though and there is a shield (goes from under the battery in front to under/back of fuel tank) between the frame and fuel tank they usually end up on. they would be between the shield and fuel tank, but while possible I think it's unlikely to damage it.Anything is possible but I would not think it is likely it would rub on the tank. The battery box is in front of the tank on the 650 so the screw is more likely to be sitting on the top of the engine.
