Thanks for the reminder. I missed that one since it was under the reservoir sock.

At this point I think some of you guys should probably just sell the Pani and get the BMW or a Japanese liter bike. I've had several ducs and they simply aren't going to offer you the maintenance free ride you are looking for. That would also cut down on the whining level around here as well.

I like checking screws, for now, its fun, and when it's no longer fun or I don't have the time to do it, I will begin to use more Loctite so that I don't have to keep tightening. For the previous comments made about experienced riders not checking tightness, well, this machine is a heck of a lot of fun and I am thinking that many rather be riding than to be maintaining. I like both but if I had to choose between riding or maintaining, I know I'd rather be riding, so there you have it, I will keep checking these various screws that I can reach before every ride, systematically Loctite-ing every loose one that I find so eventually not have to think about this as much. I just hope that critical bolts or unreachable ones don't come loose before the services, at which point I will ask the dealer to kindly check those things that I cannot.

Not to mention it gets lighter the more you ride it...

I think the real test around these parts is how long the AR exhaust stays on for before it falls off.

Marked all my bolts on the front suspension/steering/controls with yellow tire crayon. Now I can quickly tell if anything shifts. Peace of mind on the front end. Will do the rest later.
