Rotating Motovation Frame Sliders?
I noticed a ways back (maybe a couple months ago) that my frame sliders...the delrin portion, rotate a little bit due to engine vibrations. They didn't rotate by very much because the wiring for my Frame Slider Turn Signals sorta holds them down a bit.
I have also noticed slightly more vibrations on my rearsets, as well as a tad more coming from the forks than usual @ idle, i can hear/see the springs from the hi/low beam vibrating inside my little projector eyes.
I recently pulled one of the FSTSignals to do a repair/salvage, and have been riding around with 1 off. I noticed it rotates a fair amount. I can actually just grab the frame slider and turn it about. Its not rattling, there is some friction there, but it moves with a little twist.
So I pulled both of the FSTSs and put a breaker bar with an extension on one end, and a large socket + extension on the other, because my thoughts were that perhaps the bolt had become loose. Needless to say this operation was a little awkward, holding two wrenches on both sides of the bike. But i tightened the bolt a little bit, (now the left slider only rotates if I put a lot of twisting torque on it) so it was at least a little loose...but i still don't have a torque wrench, so i cannot see what sort of torque is on that long bolt.
Question for you guys is this:
Did the 3 tip-overs I have suffered through, even though the frame sliders are still strait, damage the sliders? I can't remember what components came with the kit. If the jarring impact fucked with the integrity of the mounting hardware than i suppose i should replace that/them.
Or maybe the whole setup just needs to be pulled, re loctited, and then torqued down again?
Any help appreciated, and apologies for long winded posts.
