Very interesting concept, I wonder if these can be re-used. thanks for the vid Lours, very thought provocative, makes you re- think your fastener retention method.

WOW! Thanks for the video, Phil!!

Looks like they'd be the "ticket", certainly on the engine-mount bolts.

there are also nuts with captive nord-lock washers so you don't have to worry about losing them.

really overkill for most stuff when threadlock is so cheap.

grainger has em as does McMaster ( http://www.mcmaster.com/#nord-lock-washers/=10jd8sx ) - but seriously you are looking at 2+$ per washer (you don't want to use a non-stainless washer on a motorcycle)

if yer bike vibrates that much it needs more than fancy washers. just sayin'

if I'm answering your question I assume the basic points have been addressed, such as: did you do a compression test? is it still on fire?

My Buell (harley 1200)was worlds smoother than my 650 V.. No comparison.. The only difference being at Idle.. The Buell , like most Harleys is very Lumpy, more shakes than vibration. I have actually wondered about Nuts and bolts coming loose on the V because of the buzziness.

I've test ridden 3 Buell's as well as a dozen or so Harley's. No I'm not an expert but my opinion was the only motors worth a damn was the liquid cooled Buell 1125 (made by Rotax) and the liquid cooled Harley motor (developed by Porsche). The air cooled lumps made by Harley were, lets be kind, unique and clearly not my choice.
