    watch out.

    was out earlier, and the cap head screw (alun bolt) on the right side that holds the throttle bracket on came loose. was still rideable so carried on riding home, was a little fidgity,
    Anyways noticed fluid round the handle and side fairing. basically the pipe on the brake fluid pot had come off, if i haddnt noticed might have come into bother a bit later on. so careful chaps.

    What the fuck are you talking about? The pipe on the pipe? Cap head screw on throttle side?

    It's brake not break too.

    Or in other words, apply common sense and check vital parts of the bike regularly.

    Meh, maybe your bike is falling to bits.

    Out of interest, can you tell me what you torqued it to?

    4 white knuckles mate. i know why it happened. it was cos i was changing clutch cable in my hall way and had bike leaning. most of time was on frame but i leant it on handle while i fillled gear box up with oil.
