Temporary motor mount replacement nut
« on: July 25, 2013, 10:58:03 pm »
So I lost a right upper motor mount bolt, and it has finally arrived at the store. Unfortunately, the nut on the backside is backordered for another week. Based on the parts fische, it looks like a basic flange nut. Does anyone know otherwise? Also, should I use locktite on these bolts?

Sometimes I wonder if my questions are too simple, but the day I assume that the bike is safe enough is probably my last day on two wheels.

Yes, it is a regular flange nut.  A regular nut and a washer will work fine, too.  If you have a choice, get the strongest nut you can, preferably one made for a metric grade 10.9 bolt, that way it won't be temporary  :great: 

I would use Loctite.
