Just noticed Luigi forgot to torque the Holy nut on my Kickstand.  Now the nut and washer are somewhere road side Northern Ontario.

This isn't the first time...At the beginning of the season one of the bolts on the curved Sidestand Lever fell off. Luckily I noticed something didn't feel right as the sidestand was not fully deployed as I was about to get off.

Too much Bira Moretti that day for Luigi.

Shit.... this stuff can knock you and your GRiSO on it's ass! Evil or Very Mad

Good catch. Might be worth a Nylok nut on it?

yeah Nylok or I'll safety wire it somehow.

Caught this one on a pre-ride check ...they actually work!  Sidestand was making an unusual clicking sound when the bike's weight went on it.

So ride won't happen tomorrow...  Don't have that size a nut to replace it.  Store's are closed for Labour day tomorrow and not going to risk a freak kickstand incident. Sad

Shit falling off is definitely part of the GRiSO experience. Razz

I went out and checked mine, yep it was loose. thanks for posting, I hadn't thought of that one.

On a track day this past February I lost the left passenger peg and one of the bolts on the kick stand arm came off and it was dragging on the pavement on left hand turns. My Italian harley LOL
