I got my engine back from getting the snapped bolt removed and right away I noticed a big diff on how it runs. It's much smoother.

1. If you can feel the engine vibrate through you seat alot more then you could before.

2. It's louder

3. Doesn't run as smooth.

If you get any of these then It's time to check your nuts.(no pun intended)

It's best to make a routine out of checking your bolts/nuts. Some do it every time they ride, some don't. I like to do it after every 5-10 rides. Only takes a minute.

I'm afraid to push it past 40km.. It starts vibrating pretty strongly and the engine and bike will move from side to side..Not sure why it wants to be so violent at those speeds. I don't need more bolts snapping on me..

I check every so often, but I jam-nut two nuts together on every bolt so I don't have them come loose. I still check though, because things can vibrate loose after a while and lots of miles.
