    TMI is also selling conversion kits so I heard so that you can use the new fasteners on an atom 2.

    Yeah, I talked to them about it. It involves drilling out the rivets from the existing ones and re-riveting. That's a bit more work than I wanna do, but that is an option for anyone wanting to go that route

    Re: Quarter-turn Fasteners

    I saw a new honda atom 3 the other day, looks like the "handle" of the fastener makes a smaller loop which had I had those I would have probably not damaged my brand new nose bonnet the first time I installed it.........due to brammo drilling holes on the wrong spot.

    and the place on ours where you can use a flathead to turn it, on theres is flat or even dished perhaps, I didn't look that closely.

    I've managed to lose a couple of my fasteners, and have found a source for 100.

    They're $1.265 each, and I would buy some if some of you other Atom 2 owners were interested in splitting them with me.

    We can all have some spares without having to drill out rivets or other such insanity.

    Anyone else interested?

    You're welcome

    I'll take a dozen or two. I lost 4 when the GM dealer reassembled my Atom in Indianapolis in 2010, and then I gave most of my spares to Tom Smurzynski.

    I'll take 30ish. Let me know how you'd like to be paid.
    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)
