This happened....

Right before I am about to take off on a 2 day journey I find this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWSlanEZysY

I was very fortunate to push my bike out of the garage and felt it before riding off. Anyone else seen this happen? Single bolt on each side backed out and caused the problem. Does anyone know the toque settings for these bolts?

How can I embed a youtube video on this forum?

Jeez Atom, your whole top yoke and probably steering stem is loose, who's been working on that bike.
Secondly, how long have you been on this forum, go and download the workshop manual from "you know where " ?

Good god more loose bolts! I'm starting to get worried about this bike. Would this be caused by my dealership replacing the sprag clutch? I didn't think they had to play with the front end but wtf do I know!

I don't consider myself very "anal" but damn, I do check periodically. Looks like I will be doing a round the bike tomorrow since I have a day off.

My Rivale has had its share of loose bolts, but both sides of the upper? Insane.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
