Default Re: Springer front end


thats the same as mine - it WILL work loose - best idea is replace the nut with a nylock or use some sort of locktite/metal glue to secure it

Symptoms are a gradually increasing shimmy on the front.. it will get to the point where it completely comes free which is *not* good..

It might have had something to do with me ending up on the floor in the middle of a three lane roundabout approach today
