    Saddle Seat Lock - make sure it's tight

    Hi All

    A check you need to do or the results are expensive.
    Under the saddle where the seat bar latches into there is a bolt head, this clamps the latching wire in place.
    This MUST be tight so check it now and on a regular basis, even LocTite the bolt in place.

    If this bolt becomes loose you wil not be able to unbolt and remove the seat........ :005:      :232:

    This I found out to my cost and it's a warning to others.... it could mean a new seat.   :087:

    Don't know if anybody has had this happen to them but be warned.

    Read your post.  Nut was tight but plate for my Givi  toolbox was loose on two nuts - so thanks Min and don't forget to check your nuts before riding  everyone!   :305:
