Where can I get some new nuts?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

When I went to re­in­stall my bat­tery after charg­ing, one of the ter­mi­nal nuts dropped out. I couldn’t find it any­where, so I wheeled the bike out of my small shed only to hear a crunch as the nut was mashed up be­tween the rear sprocket teeth and the chain, for­tu­nately with­out dam­ag­ing ei­ther. I don’t want to buy an­other bat­tery for such a small part, but where can I get a re­place­ment? James All­wright, Manor Park

An­swered by Chris Dabbs, MCN Any dealer with a work­shop will have loads of old bat­ter­ies knock­ing around, so ask them for a cou­ple of re­place­ments. To stop it hap­pen­ing again push a lit­tle grease into the ter­mi­nal gaps be­fore re­fit­ting the nuts. This also helps against acid cor­ro­sion.
