1970 B25 side panel Oddie fasteners: long or short

Post by crusadersports » Thu Aug 13, 2020 4:43 pm

Hi all,

Ive just got a new steel sidepanel for a 1970 B25 I have. Its held on by two oddie fasteners which I need to order. The parts book lists long or short oddie fasteners, but doesnt say if you need two short or two long or one of each! Any suggestions please? I don't really want to guess and end up ordering the wrong ones if it can be avoided. Thanks in advance.

For bikes with both side covers you need 3 short and 1 long, for those with the toolbox cover only its one short and one long with the long at the front top position. A 70 B25 only should have the toolbox cover, the oil tank used was the Victor oil tank with no brackets to hold the oddie clips and no cover, the decal was applied directly to the oil tank. The oil tank also had a shorter oil filler neck so kick starting did not give you a permanent bruise on the inner thigh.

Hi Kommando, thats perfect, just what i needed to know to order the right bits. Thank you! My set up is exactly as you describe for 70, with the steel tool box cover and B44 type oil tank. Thanks for your help!
