Well it finally came in in the right colour.  Very simple to remove the 2 m6 screwsand refit in the seat cowl.  £53 delivered colour matched.  Love it.  When the weather is better I can take better pics add not enough room or light in the garage.

Thanks. The engine is still the same, the chassis is still the same, but this bike appealed to me because of its modern styling.  My buddies 2007 M800 is also a beauty and the speedo is way better as the newer model has a very smallneedle movement between 0 and 40 but I do love it's style.

I agree with the comments above. The M800 is really improved with the seat cowl; the flowing line of the rear is just perfect now.

I could do with some 6mm screws with wingnuts on the top to aid quick fitment and swapover.

Found these on ebay but the postage is £10 ouch...

I know they fit as I measured the OEM screws and spoke to the guy...

Ideal. How do I fix the wingnut to the thread bar so that it becomes a screw?

Or drill it through & use a split pin or R clip, job done but then thats my look on it obviously.

I would probably go with Peters idea ideally but ease would probably send me Sim's way, both good suggestions though.  Fitted suzuki seat cowl on M800 2013 3498837457

I think threadlock would be the way to as if it was drilled and split pinned or an "R" clip there is a possibility of it rusting, but, make sure you wipe any excess threadlock off if you go that way  Fitted suzuki seat cowl on M800 2013 696333

Hi Kevin, I know this is an old post but can you remember where you bought the seat cowl from? I am after one in the same colour. I think your bike looks great by the way. Thanks in advance, Keith

I notice that you are a full member now Keith, have you tried going into the site shopping mall yet? Click on the Member Discount area and then Metric cruisers as they sell them too. Don't know if they do them in the blue you are after, but its worth a look see!  Fitted suzuki seat cowl on M800 2013 3498837457

Thanks for the advice, I have tried the Member Discount area but it looks as though its still restricted to my level of membership. I will look into upgrading my account.
