Normal for a Ducati

OK so this is my first Ducati & I love the bike however is it normal for bolts/nuts/parts just to fall off the bike. So far the following has come off:

Bolts from newly installed rear sets
Bolt holding seat in place
Bolt holding new CF rear bigger
Cap from mirror

I assume its down to the vibration obviously

After installing aforementioned items was Loc-tite or similar thread locking compound used?
As for those chincy junk covers for the pivot arm of the mirrors- well they like to fly off.
Buddy of mine lost his on his 12 Base after 2 days of ownership...

Your dealership is responsible for verifying that all components have been installed properly and the torque settings have been verified.
The vibrations of a V2 will affect your fastening devices long term. Checking them occasionally is a good precaution.

Enjoy!

Oh... and blue stuff does the job.

I prefer Wurth over Loctite
What's fallen off mine so far is the Clutch Fluid resevior cap, and 1 Side Fairing screw, both items in the first 300 Kms.
Over 5000 Kms now and nothing since

Cheers

OK so if I can even get Loctite over here it should be blue right!

Not a lot of faith in my dealership. Unfortunately they are the only one on the island.
