It seems that these bikes decide to work on themselves while riding. the ghost wrench decides to take bolts out of everything that it can, (I know its the vibration) But I noticed a bolt mising from skid plate,left front headlight,and 2 from the front of the gyt-r exuast. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up.

Every now and then, take a 10 and 12 mm socket and just tighten every bolt in sight...

Or just apply a dab of blue loc-tite. They won't go anywhere after that.

Are you sure they were all tight when it was new... Shoot I've already stripped a few phillip head screws off of my bike since they were tightened so much. A few I had to take off wit vise grips and put a new screw in there...

Just my 2 cents

invest in an impact, i use a ghetto one u have to hit with a hammer and it works fine for tightening and taking bolts on and off.....really good thing for bikes if you got 20 bucks to spend on it.
