Yes, Rebel. Comes in different colors and for different applications. I used clear all-purpose. Good luck.

Auto parts or places like Walmart with an automotive section.

Sorry, meant "two bit" (25ยข) solution. Thought it was the same on both sides until I looked.

Thanks Undecider. The 3rd quarter out of my stash was Idaho. It is now RTV'd in place. I like it.

RE: That ugly round blank on the throttle body
Doing a google search on quarter sized medallions and found some for each of the armed forces - if that is of interest.

I suspect there are other choices, maybe even Honda logo's, that would fit in there.

Crazy glue is too brittle for this job. RTV or silicone adhesive or that automotive double sided tape to attach trim are excellent choices. But an air nailer may do the job too........ Angel

RE: That ugly round blank on the throttle body
Was looking thru some quarters tonight while pondering this thread. I think I have every state and some interesting places like Arches, and Mt Rushmore but interestingly I found 2 for the" Blue Ridge Parkway 2015" North Carolina with a depiction of the curvy road and one of the tunnels where our first CB1100 Rally was this year and where I have ridden both of my CB's.

Doh... see I'm late to the party as several members already mentioned this quarter earlier in the thread. Always a day behind I tell ya Undecided

It doesn't matter what I ride, where I ride, or how far I ride... it only matters THAT I ride...every day...Ferret

I have one of those quarters in my pocket right now. That's on my bucket list of places to ride. Probably won't be on the CB unless I trailered it out there. It's not set up for touring and stays close to home.

So, did you put that quarter on your bike?
