47.03.01 Nut 18x8.4

 If you need a definition of a nut you probably shouldnt be attempting to work on a motorcycle. There are many types and sizes of nuts and you can find guides to the various types and sizes on most of the suppliers websites - its often best to read these as it will help to work out their ordering systems. Some parts lists will specify the type of nut and its size (e.g. self-locking M8) - the morini parts list goes further with some acronyms which I havent been able to decipher yet (eg VT. 322). The type of nut required will depend on the application, ideally you shouldnt reuse self-locking nuts.

We've used in the past (be aware that alot of the bigger commercial suppliers want you to order in large quantities) at the other end of the spectrum you can find specific guides to makes and models e.g.
