Default Re: Warning to All! - Everyone look at this!

The only time I hit 30MPH is going downhill with the clutch disengaged and that is scary enough for me. I cannot imagine the 'thrill' of having a motor come loose under power at that speed.

A few people have mentioned replacing the mounting bolts with Grade 8. Personally I elected to go with Grade 5 which are still much higher quality than the stock bolts but they have a certain amount of 'give' that is lacking in Grade 8 bolts which are stronger but more brittle. After a few rides in the rain, though, I am also thinking stainless might be a better option.
