Somehow I also feel that sometimes it's better not to touch things which are working :)

Already 2 weeks of free fitness for me - using bicycle while bike is at dealer  :033:

DUH! :138: Nope! But I'm glad I posted the vid and someone else saw it, cause I looked all over to see if anything was missing and did not catch that.

:031: for you if I'm ever in your neck of the woods. I'm pretty sure that will be the cause as the noise is most definitely coming from that area of the bike. I'll see if I can source another nut (besides me I mean) around here.

Cheers

P.S. I've been losing my nuts all over the place (now y'all can get your head out of the gutter there) ever since that head replacement. It's possible this is another culprit (or that it simply vibrated itself loose over all the topes here in Mexico)

Believe it or not, I've run into the exact same problem  :005:  Loose Nuts!!

Went to start the bike this morning after sitting a couple of weeks and there was a terrible noise for the first few minutes. Sure enough, one of the exhaust header nuts was so loose that I took it off by hand  :114:

I checked to see how tight the other nuts were and others seem to be loose as well so I can't get a feel for how tight they should be.

Does ANYONE know the torque settings for these nuts?? If so, that information would be extremely helpful!

P.S. unlike l84toff, I don't have anyone to blame for the loose bolts. I've owned this TEX for 4 months, put about 1200 miles on it and the ONLY work done to it so far is the 500 mile break in service......

I wonder if this thread will ever die?
