I'm not sure this is worthy as a real how-to, but if it saves someone the fifteen or so minutes it took me, it will be worth it.

You figured out to push the center of the pin in and got the cover off. You have topped up the coolant (or not) and it is time to go back together. This pin looks like this:

To "re-arm" the retaining pin, you need to push the wings back in. To do this, spread the wings apart a bit more, maybe a mm or so, while pushing the wings back into the body of the pin. You need to hold the head of the pin 90 degrees to the wings, or you will be pushing on what you are holding.

Once the wings go in, you can push them so that the center button of the head is proud of the head. You can now inset the pin and push the center flush, and all is well.

It took me a little while before I figured out how to reinsert the retaining pin, mostly because it is a little different from the one used on the battery compartment door. When I had my Burgman it had the battery compartment type, so this other type of retaining pin didn't work the same way. Hopefully this How-to will help those new to this type.

Oh those pesty pesty pins! I'd rather have stainless steel screws. But then we'd gain weight, and we won't have that! :lol:

Thank you George, many members will appreciate your know how (me too ;)
