The captive nuts are loose - they have a small amount of play in their location. But they absolutely do not fall off into the black hole.

The nuts on my ST are defiantly NOT CAPTURED, except by the black hole.
I had nothing to loose at this point so I went back in and pulled the lower of the three springy thingies and the sound I heard was the nut making it's way into the dark hole behind the fairing.

The new springy thingies nuts will have some form of capture after I have the headlight assembly in-hand.

This one of those Oh Well moments.
I get a unencumbered look at the entire front end of the engine, forks and such.
Ideal for the clean, clean, clean process.
I will have the cleanest, shiniest clutch cover on the block.
Rotate the clutch and brake fluid while I have unrestricted access as well.

Our new season starts very shortly.
I will be ready.


The next time one of you guys are in there how about a photo of the capture device for these nuts.

definitely and maybe they are defiant, as well.
The nuts are just telling you that they are not Klingons.

I won't know how until I have the top cowl in hand but I'm going to make them "Kling".

Mine were not captured either. I held one of those magnetic wand things there to avoid dropping the nut. Of course reinstalling required further disassembly to get a finger behind using a bit of double sticky tape to hold the nut until the screw grabbed it.

I won't know for sure until I have it in-hand but the current thinking is something along the line of weather strip cement, aka Gorilla Snot.
Semi flexible, semi permanent, keep it off the threads and it "should" be a simply fix for a item that has lasted 13 years without incident.
Easy to check. Simply snot the nuts on and let it setup then screw on the springy thingies and see if it holds before assemble of the plastic.
If it will hold the nut for the next 13 years before letting go it becomes the next owners problem.

I had the plastics off today for the 48k mile valve clearance check and a brake fluid flush, so I had a look up front. The nuts on my '04 are NOT captive- they are candidates for the abyss or some equally dark and mysterious corner or crevice.

But I was too lazy to do anything about it.
