I noticed today that the large round "bolt" on the final drive was backing itself out. This is not one of the drain or fill bolts for the oil. This is the larger circular one with a large allen head. Took out my allen wrenchs and tightend it back. I've been hearing some sounds from back there but thought it was my helmet lock rattling. Anybody have this happen or know what's going on? Thanks!

That is your axle, you need to torque the axle nut on the other side to 81 ft lbs. It is a 27mm nut

If you don't have 27mm, SAE 1-1/16 is the same size.

Tightened her up at least a 1/2 inch. Wow, do I feel like a doofus. Well, you learn something everyday. Thanks for the help, Bama and Dakota.
