20210826_142850.jpgFYI, I did 150k ride on my SV401 and after getting home I noticed the bolt holding the shifter linkage to the shift arm had come lose, almost feel out. I cleaned the threads and applied 242 loctite, that should hold. It would've been bad to drop that off on the highway.

Interesting, I typically have to tighten the other one, marked with blue i your pic.

Like every tenth ride.

I notice before I take off because 1st makes a clunk if its loose.

Mine fell out on city streets. Luck I noticed right away and was able to walk back and recover the bushing/bolt. Definitely this is not getting loctite like it should during the assembly.
