2018 Aprilia Dorsoduro 900: MD First Ride (Bike Reports) (News)

Intention makes the hooligan. We recently reviewed Aprilia’s Shiver 900, a bike that shares its frame, engine, electronics, brakes and wheels with this motorcycle. But a simple change of intention via longer travel suspension, wider bars, flatter enduro-style seat, and other assorted tweaks, and you get a machine that has a very different character. Some […]

My bike doesn't have stock exhaust, I didn't mention that, but the previous owner put on aftermarket pipes, so I may have more space for a wrench or socket than stock exhaust. Originally my exhaust had nuts that required a special Allen wrench but I changed them to flanged hex nuts.

Pete - agree with all. As I said, my bad on routine maintenance. I didn't put Loctite on the first time and look how long it went. Now if I just check them regularly, I think I'll prevent this from happening again....but just thought I'd ask the question because of the number of knowledgeable people on this forum. So, no surprise on the Loctite answer.

I do remember these allen nuts not being easy to get to. Can't remember if I cut a wrench into a special tool....in any case, I think I will look into regular nuts or acorns now that I have to do something. Seems like regular tools and a torque wrench would be easier to use that way. Check for clean and square good too.

Personally I wouldn't use any kind of thread locking compound such as Loctite. The penalty for getting it wrong is sheared studs which is a big, royal, pain in the bum. Torquing them up to the factory spec. and then checking once a month is only a little effort.

It might be worth your while to check that your installation is clean and square before putting new nuts on.

  When I click on it, it comes out right, he is standing on his feet.

  I am planning on a long and cold winter, I saw the caterpillar's coat last week and am getting ready. Red needs very little because she has always been babied along, now Pearl has some really I think nice mods coming, and some nice new additions to her.....she will be a work in progress and no rush to get her on the road, but I do not want to take Greenbarn's record of having a bike on the lift for something close to 2 years..........he will claim, wife, work, yard work, job, wife, kids, wife, sore back, waiting parts, some other excuses I can not remember....lol.....
