Coming from 40 years of riding Harleys I learned Blue or Red loctite thread locker on all fasteners prevents parts from falling off. When I upgraded my rides to Imports I still do it as a precaution. Only use the red on larger fasteners that are problems. The blue is sufficient for smooth running imports that don't shake a lot.

 :005: If that short bolt is the standard one that is disgraceful.

Ive got my OEM topbox mount in the loft, ill try and have a look later, i cant remember it being like that when i took it off.
