For reference, here's pretty much every nut, bolt and washer (excluding proper and casing screws) from an RE5. Most are labelled and may help you find where that bolt belongs on your rebuild.
I think it's a very original collection. There may be one or two ring-ins. There may also be some apparent differences. For example, I think the earlier bikes may have had chrome footpeg bolts while the later were zinc plated (like some of the GT750's). Timpa has pointed out that the very early bikes also had chrome heat shield screws which were later just zinc.
The handwritten notes were for personal use and may not always make sense, these were never intended to end up on the 'net. Anyway, it's just a guide. I'll include the casing screws over the next week or so.
REAR SHOCK WASHERS- The numbers (9 to 13) refer to their parts book references.
Believe it or not, this is actually correct. There is a whole collection of very specific washers in the parts book that constitute what goes where at the upper rear shock mounts. Barely two are the same per side. Suzuki seemed to be very good at over complicating everything from a handful of washers right up to a Rotary Engined motorcycle. The set varied whether you had the single sided rail fitted or the double sided grab rail with or without rack
Two 09 Victory Visions, RE-5 parts bikes merging into one. Former bikes are a 75 RE-5, Sportster, several XS-11's, XJ-750, GL1000, GL1100, Several Valkyries, VTX 1800, Vstrom 1000, and a few other bikes along the way.
Just so's you know I'm not totally crazy, that record was inspired by me getting very tired of sending 300 items to the chrome and zinc platers and getting 300 back. Trouble is, only 250 of the 300 were actually mine.
(okay, okay, the rear shock washer thing was a moment of madness..............but it's okay, they're back in their display case)
