Gear Shifter

I had mine (gear shifter) fall off while driving on the AutoBahn in Germany. Not Fun. To prevent this from happening again I placed some locktight on bolt and retightened. I'll be checking that every ride. Fender bolts have fallen off behind exhausts & hand guards were loose when checking too. My bike just went over 2000 miles (2005). How many more bolts to I need to put locktight on Suzuki?

On my first ride, I was out for about 45 minutes. Got back home and the right rear turn signal was resting on the muffler heat shield. If it were not for the fact that it was attached to the wiring harness, it would have been gone.

Check *all* your bolts! :mrgreen:

Go on ebay and get the carbon fibers. They only cost about 20.00 a set

Suzuki's well-engineered redundancy.
