Front sprocket bolt heads up

Not sure if it is common knowledge on this forum, but the front sprocket is prone to popping off with track abuse. Has happened to a few owners on here.

Goes without saying, you don't want that to happen at speed. I have now safety wired it. Photo attached for reference.

Good thing no one posts in the 899 forum or I might have missed this one. I have just ordered a 14t front sprocket so will do this when I change it. Thanks
Thanks from goldontop

Shit, I never noticed that, but that chain is poorly lubed to say the least.

Properly lubed for sure. That little surface rust has been gone for a bit now.
