Suspension locknuts
« on: January 13, 2018, 02:49:13 PM »
Is there any reason not to use nyloc nuts on the suspension linkage?

Dire warnings in the service manual not to reuse in critical locations such as suspension.
Triumph locknuts are excruciatingly expensive.

Aiming to lube all the bearings so over 30 for the replacement locknuts.

"Thin" nyloc nuts under 7.
Worth a try?

Shouldn't make any difference, though I just re used the originals when I lubed the rear linkage..

Mine have been reused at least 4 times, still doing their job
Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.
