Loose Nut - missed a ride
Cautionary note for a nut check, I got home tonight from work to a beautiful evening and an anticipated stress relieving ride only to find on pre-flight, a stray bolt dangling from the side faring. Having never disassembled anything yet, I carefully started unbolting to figure out from where it came. I had reported a slight rattle at my 600mi checkup but didn't know what it was. I found out and luckily, no harm - no foul.
The bolt belonged in the top of the faring bracket as the pivot bolt for securing the tank on the top. The nut was lost, but a trip to the hardware store produced a suitable replacement (though the evening was shot). So check your tank branket support bolt. My guess is that it was never tightened in the first place and rattled off. Pic attached if I can figure out how to do it.
