    If you got a pic of the ones your talking about i can tell you where they go.

    I was thinking you also ment the metal clips mate.

    Did you look at easyparts.nl in the original parts diagrams?

    Yeah, but give me a link or something to them mate, on the parts diagram with the number or what ever, because the only well nuts you describe are on a SR50 (old model, front intake scoops), not on a RS50...

    So where did you see them on a Diagram? thats my question...

    Seems clear to me where they go, 2 where the airscoops go, and 1 more a bit to the back to the top of the fairing... they fix the front fairing and the 2 inner parts (one side has the filler cap for the cooling) to the side fairing.

    ok that makes sence now that you say it but why is it say there is a need for 20 . unless they must go every where there are no clips but the plastics connect . duh sometimes having someone else look at it and then explain what they see makes a difference lol I feel a little dumb as it was pretty obvious. by the way what do you use for anti freeze regular stuff or is there special stuff

    20?... think you just need 6... maybe a few more i missed, but not 20...

    Motocool or any other motorcycle cooling fluid thats ready to use, dont use stuff that you have to mix your self.
    You only need a littre, and if you buy other cooling fluids that are ready to use make sure it says its suitable for alloy engines.
