1. What keeps a wing nut that you can't torque down from coming loose?
The wing nut idea is nothing new and would be easier and cheaper for us to produce.
We did that about 10 years ago and had complaints with wing nuts coming
loose and bent foot pegs from over tightening.
In the ten years that I have been using and manufacturing the Motojackrack, I have had little or no
loosening of our set screw design. In fact, this is the first time I have heard of such an experience.
You need to torque them down with the jack tube approximately 20 to 30 ft lbs.
2. We have offered both painted or powder coating finishes. They both scratch about
as fast when a dirt bike contacts them. We have tested and seen racks after months
of use and can not tell the difference between the two coatings. The benefit of our
painting process is that we dip the rack in a production type enamel, much in the
same way cars are painted. This covers the entire tubular structure and inhibits
internal rusting, unlike powder coating, which only coats the outer surfaces.
