    Loosening Horst Problem :o(

    Hi,
    The drive side horst link on my Burner keeps loosening up. Any ideas for a fix?
    I wonder if the bolt threads got streched out from riding it while loose. I tried new nylock nut, and blue lock tite. I think its holding now. Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Those would be it. They make stronger loctite if necessary.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Well, be careful because nylocks are designed to be used WITHOUT loctite.

    The other half of that problem is loctite type products can melt the nylon insert. Ask me how I know.
