Keep those fasteners properly torqued!

Here's how to always quickly know the torque specs on your ride's fasteners, saving you a lot of time looking specs up in the manual. Take a Sharpie pen and on the head of the fastener, write the torque spec on the it. If the bolt is black, use a silver or other contrasting color Sharpie.

Then, for quick visual pre-ride inspection, put a dot or other mark on the fastener, then an aligning mark on the material that its fasten to. Then, if the two marks are no longer aligned, you'll know that the fastener has moved. This is a good technique for critical fasteners such as on drive sprockets, triple clamps & axle nuts.

And, don't worry, Sharpie pen marks wipe off easily with a little brake cleaner or other solvent.
