Exclamation Check you're nuts

I read a thread recently where someone mentioned their front sprocket nut was loose.

Today I received a 19 tooth sprocket and fitted it to my 09 Bonneville. It turns out that my nut was also loose. Very loose.

It's now torqued up accordingly. Gonna put it on my check list going forward... So go on everyone... Check you're nuts...

There's probably more harmful stuff emitted by that mobile phone kept in your jeans pocket.
