While replacing one of the air intake ducts (fluted like pipes inside the air box) I managed to shear off one retainer bolt. So I'm now the proud owner of a stud removal set, which I plan to try out at the weekend and a replacement bolt on the way for a tenner!

Anyhoo, I now notice the bit of the bolt that I have left has some impact damage I can't account for (see picture). Has anyone else heard of the ducts chattering at the bolts, or is this specific to my bike? Should I be worried about this?

Haynes don't stipulate thread lock, but now I'm worried they're all going to vibrate loose. Should I be using thread lock on all fittings on the bike?

Any thoughts appreciated.
