    The front mounting tab on my chain guard sheared off from the vibration. Had to make a bar to fix it.

    welcome. enjoy the site.
    nice bike.
    i agree with the thread locking compound.
    all the nuts/bolts on the bike need to be checked,and a loose fender needs to be tended to right away.aparrently there have been some serious happenins when fenders come off.
