Screw loose
« on: June 21, 2018, 01:09:20 PM »
Just back from completing an ss1000 and on checking bike over found one screw holding screen on missing two others about to fall out and a nut missing by the nav mount. Nut was found missing from clutch lever in service last week to I presume can only be down to the vibes

They're certainly located around the front end.  And, there's no doubt that's a buzzy part of the 'XR.

I'm wondering if it's worth the time to put some light loc-tite on a few of these screws.  :155:
