Concerned owner here, I have 1900km on my 1299 at the moment. Regarding tightening of bolts? How do I know if they are lose?
One can easily over torque by simply fitting a socket wrench or similar especially on smaller bots and Allen keys, so what is a safe method to overcome this possibility?
It's not practical to try them by hand because they could be lose and just tight so your hand cannot turn them or are you guys having issue wherein you can see the bolt physically turned out ?

there are bolts that are so loose, you can lose them during a ride.

so far, i had caught loose on:

rear wheel hub, mirror, shift rod, kick stand (front bolt gone), fairings, clip on, front fender

If you cannot tell by putting on a spanner, then buy a good quality torque wrench. The torque list is here on the forum. Print it out. Problem solved. The list even tells you what to locktite.
