Thanks! I served in Swiss Airforce, therefore I fully understand your needs/feelings

If you're going to drill the aluminium nut I'd suggest that you're going to re-anodize it afterwards. Let me know if I could be of any assistance for you.

How about 2 separate, angled holes maybe 3 mm off the peak of the outer hex? Their bottom meeting right under the center?

Okay, I tried on an OEM nut.

So you have a drilled nut. What are you going to safety wire it to?

I'm not seeing another decent bolt to wire onto.

Even this way allows the bolts to loosen a bit:


I suppose I'd just paint them and eye ball them every round.
Thanks from Phl

What is the purpose to safety wire it? This doesn't prevent the nut to gets loose.

This could be tightened up alot really. Try running to long side out of the top right side of the axle nut the bring it around to the other side flush with the nut. then straight to the front forks nut.

Example below of how tight it should be

Done properly it does prevent bolts/ nuts from backing out. Its value is also as a visual cue that things have been properly torqued. As mentioned above, paint or torque seal can also serve that purpose in some cases. I have a mental checklist whenever I do anything like remove a wheel, change brake pads, change oil, etc.

I don't ride street. I do this so that I'm not "that guy" at a track day... The one that crashes because of something stupid like a loose oil plug and lays down oil for everybody else to ride around.

I safety wire my bike as if I was adhering to racing rules... They're there for a reason...

Agree on that but not the way it's been done above.

Thanks
