Next time add a dab of loctite to the bolt. There's a lot of vibrations on the front end of a bike.

I just found out that the early 98 and up 6r's had the front fender recalled. I took mine off to look and around the bolt holes, it is cracked. Supposedly the plastic washers were too thin, causing stress from the tight screws. I always had a rattle over bumps, now I know. Ive been to the dealer for service many times since I bought it new and they never said thing. bastards.
Wonder if its too late. 4yrs after purchase. hmm. Front fender comes loose, locks up front tire, endo, lawsuit. nah, its not too late. LOL
