FYI - "double nut"

Recommended Posts

FYI - my shifter kept loosening, red Loctite would not stop it either. So I put a longer bolt in with a nut behind it = problem solved.

After arrowing for an enduro and stopping often my kick stand bolts loosened and the kick stand stopped functioning (dangerous)- these bolts are not a standard thread size (at least in my bolt collection) and I couldn't find a longer bolt, besides they have an un-common 11mm head and I don't carry an 11mm with me in my tool bag. I tapped the frame the next size up and put in longer quality Allen bolts with a backup nut - at least I won't have to worry about it...

The kick stand bolts are 11mm head, 7mm thread. I have a box of 99 if anyone ever needs any. (when you need 1, 100 is better, or at least that is what the order desk at mcmaster carr claims)
