Good point on that Dave. Indeed, thread lock will attack the nylock. I remember that nylocks are to be used only for one application. i.e. no screw-unscrew a trillion times, since the plastic is permanently deformed once it enters a thread. You can actually tell the difference between a used one and a fresh one by the difficulty it enters the bolt. I am not replacing every single time, but if it the damage from a loose nut is big, every single time I put a fresh one....

If in doubt, safety wire everything. It would be difficult on the inside but hey, you have to be thorough when proposing solutions eh?

I agree that welding probably has an advantages. But I am certainly glad that JMo didn't weld hers on since the JVO kit from her bike is now sitting in my garage

I didn't know the bit about loctite + nylock. Lots of good info in this thread.

We've found no need for welding (and have had some epic crashes )

a radiused mild steel block inside the headstock a bit like the one Gany posted (slightly simpler design than that though), drilled and tapped to M8, and on the outside, a shaped ally block with countersinks in the front. Dab of Loctite 243, bolt in, job done. We've found no loosening, no vibration issues, nothing, just a rock solid tree. If at some future point it was to loosen for any reason, the bolts can come out of the front with no dramas, or tightened easily. No need to remove anything.

Nylocks on the side plate bolts, no issues there either. The back block needs to be different depths and shapes depending on the bike for clearance reasons though.

VERY much like my design. I crash-tested it in Marocco 2010 and it works great.

Hagen, your block looks like ally but is tapped? You find the threads to be strong enough? We chose steel for the backing block

Can I ask why 5 taps in the side of the block? They look like m6?

Yes, It can brake by bike flipped upside down on my rb holder.

The MRS isa module system, you use the holes you need. I used the lower 3 for a HID bracket.

Oh, sorry. Yes T6-aluminium with stainless steel threads (glued).

And yes 30 mm m6 straight through thread on the outer block.
