Fired up the DR for this morning's commute and noticed a rattle it hasn't had before. A quick visual inspection showed that 7000 km of vibes from the big single have caused the number plate to fatigue around the head of one of the mounting screws. Bugger. Riding it like that is going to be a recipe for the other screw to give way, followed by the hassle of obtaining a new plate. Not to worry, 30 seconds and a couple of strips of precision moulded nylon later, I was set, at least until the weekend when I can sort out some big rubber washers or something to prevent a recurrence :grin: .
