I got a surprise this morning on the way to work as my left foot peg gave way (see left image). A bolt had fallen out and the peg swung down towards the ground with a couple inches of clearance. Last week my hand guard bolt had rattled loose as well (see right image). I had always spot checked bolts on my Ninja 650r to see if they had become loose over time, but then never had. I eventually got out of the habit of even looking. With a single cylinder thumper it’s not quite the same as the Ninja. I’ll have to keep an eye out for these things more often. I’ll probably start Loctiting every thing in sight one day.
