This happened to me -- the circlip fell off, and the bolt almost worked itself completely out -- a few months after I got my XCT in 2012. I discuss this in one of the pics-and-caption in my gallery, specifically this one (and pic attached here):
- I bought a new stock circlip, put it on, and slathered the outside of it -- and the one on the other side, too -- with red (i.e., "permanent") thread locker. This solution has worked fine for two+ years.
- A few folks have drilled through the bolt, and put a cotter pin in there.
- It may also help if you reverse the direction of the bolt, but I didn't do that.
Mine didn't have them on when i bought the bike, didn't notice until i got home. dealer ordered them for me and they haven't come loose since. I put them on myself with no locktite and have not had a problem in almost two years.
I just picked my bike up yesterday after having my exhaust/performance upgrade done and mentioned the clips to my mechanic. He had some in the shop and put them on for me. Thanks for the info my brothers!
Blessed beyond belief!
