Howdy minto.murray32!

Close call on finding those loose flange bolts!

Those flange bolts should have a threadlocker applied and then torqued to spec. The shop manual says those bolts should be replaced with every brake job, plus the OEM bolts come with the threadlocker already applied.

Hi bought second hand 1993 shadow 600 vt checked most of the things i could think of at the time one month later while checking tyre pressure i noted loose bolt on front brake caliper it was half way out the other bolt was also loose lucky i found it before it came right off minto
I had a bike do that recently also. I added a little torque seal to the bolt when I tightened it back up.
