Missing Item from battery box?

Hi All,

I am in need of your extensive knowledge regarding the parts and pieces on the vn750.

While over this past Memorial Day weekend, I decided it would be a good idea to do the r/r relocation. While performing this task, I notice the battery box was slightly rusted, so I decided it's time to do a quick clean and paint on the box. This is when I noticed a couple of nuts that wasn't being used. So the question is am I missing something on my bike? The nuts are located to the rear of the box underneat what looks to be a relay.

BatteryBox1.jpg - circled in red is one of the nuts with while the other one is further in.
BatteryBox2.jpg - shows the junction box. The nuts would be just past and a little lower then the wires.
BatteryBox3.jpg - picture from the top. red circle is just a reference to the location but near the bottom of the battery box.

Any and all help would be greatful.

Thanks in advance.

Dan

I can't check my bike now but you can look at this site:

http://www.bikebandit.com/kawasaki-m...arts/oem-parts

Drill down to your bike year and vn750. It should help to let you know if something is missing. The battery box is described in the diagram called Frame Fittings.

Mine is a '97, so this would mean it is an unused spot and thus I'm not missing anything from there, right?

You are correct. You are not missing anything.

Why do you suppose they quit using self cancelling turn signals?

They were probably not working as well as Ma Kawi had hoped.
