Loose frame and engine mount bolts
A question to all you long term Wee operators, users, abusers!
2015 DL650A. 25,000 Ks
Bike started "creaking and groaning" more than usual.
Found one engine bolt and four sub frame bolts loose. One sub frame bolt missing...
I probably spend more time offroad than this bike is designed for. Mainly forestry tracks, fire roads and the like. A lot of high speed short sharp impacts involved..
A lot of our sealed roads out in the country are worse than the dirt tracks themselves. Sometimes it's a relief to get back on to the dirt
after 50Ks of patched tar roads.
SOOO my question is, what else should I be looking at, as far as fittings, nuts, bolts etc?
