Because of reading this, I started checking my case bolts and some other bolts on the bike and I've found a good percentage of them too loose for my tastes. On the left side of the engine, most of the bolts were barely snug and I found several crankcase bolts barely finger tight.

So I guess the moral of the story is for new Triumph owners to check their bolts, because the dealer doesn't, even after paying the bux for their service that is supposed to check the bolts.......
