Good save Nathan. I've been looking around at nuts and bolts too ... prepping for a 4 day bumpy road ride. So far, looking pretty good.

I did find something I've seen before on other bikes. (dumb!)

The license plate! Not only were there only TWO bolts ... but they were not tight.

But here is something some may miss: Unless all 4 bolts are used that plate can really BUZZZ when at certain RPM's. Just adds to the cacophony in general ...
Sounds Cheap! (can't have that on this bike $$$$ )

I replaced all four bolts, tightened with Blue Loctite, no buzz now.

I usually find the loose bolts after they've fallen out. Lost one of the center stand bolts (Loctite from factory) and the rear brake reservoir mounting bolt. it's a buzzy bike with so-so suspension. Not that shocking to me.
