safety check

I am doing some PM on the brute today. I went to take off my front tire and seen I was missing 1 lugnut & the other 3 were a little bit tighter than hand tight. So I ask you as soon as you get done reading this post to do a safety check on your bike. I by no means am a big safety person. But I got to thinking that yesterday I was riding my little boy on it. Could have turned out bad.

good idea to check every once and a while, i had that happen to me one time but luckily i felt the tire start to wobble a little bit.

i've never had this problem on the brute thankfully.

good idea to inspect the machine every now and then.

Nothing like applying the correct tork plus a pound or so. Don't forget to check the tierod end's nuts on your safety shakedown. Its a bad thing to loose steering too.
