That'what I'm talkin'about! The G5 cover is doing something like what I was thinking...block the bolt from being able to completely un-thread!   ::)

Maybe some kind of disc or puck could be epoxied to the inside of the C5 cover as one potential way to stop the bolt, if it were still a problem?  ???

I red loctite-ed mine a while back, but next time I'm in there I'll see what I can do...just in case all else fails! :o

Meanwhile, I think I'll google Nordlocks and see what I'm missing...

I'm guessing, if it hasn't come loose before you got 45000 km on the bike, it isn't going to.

For better or worse, that's my attitude about my 2011, G5 with 23000 miles (37100 km) on it.
