8mm left hand thread among other parts needed for '13 Metro

Postby 2013HondaMetro on Mon Jun 19, 2017 5:20 pm

Hello,

Anyone know where I might be able to find a 8mm left hand thread nut? It screws under the rear view mirrors and keep its from coming loose. Didnt have any luck at Home Depot.

Also looking for the right side turn signals (front and back). The scooter had been dropped and the lens cover popped off. Not sure if I need just the cover or the entire piece. If anyone has any extra available and want to get rid of it, please let me know

Thanks!

I can't say if there are many marine hardware stores in OKC, but it is quite common for boats to use left hand threaded hardware. Nuts and bolts, almost always stainless. It is harder to find in metric instead of SAE, but you might luck out. I'm sure this is much easier to find in a bike repair shop, either motorcycle or bicycle shop.

Also, I just Googled "8mm left hand thread nut" and found a generous amount of resources for this hardware, without having to order it in lots of 500 units!

No special suggestions for turn signal replacement. Try Bike Bandit or Battle Scooter other resources listed here

Look, here's a guy parting out a 2013 Honda Metro. Ask if he'll sell you what parts you need! He's in Florida and added his phone #. Go make contact and get those signal units!
