Prevailing torque countershaft nut loose
In the process of moving all the aftermarket items from my #2 KLR (blown engine) to my #3 KLR I noticed that the prevailing torque nut I moved from the countershaft on #2 to #3 require very little torque to remove and reinstall. I ordered a new one which arrived yesterday.
The new nut required a reasonable torque to install with a 6 inch ratchet wrench once the threads on the shaft came through the outside edge of the nut and I am satisfied with it.
I wonder it anyone else has noticed one of these nuts losing tension on the shaft after a good number of removal and replacements.
