hey just came back from bashing the baja in a local field (with permission), anyway i noticed just as i was ready to leave the exhaust was sort of shaking about and very loose? Is this a common problem on these only just got it a couple days ago and its on its 3rd tank? im guessing i just take the bolts out and threadlock them?

cheers

Ricky

Loose exhaust is just the thing settling in. Tighten it up and keep an eye on it.

best thing to do is when the engine has warmed up, check them and tighten them up if needs be.
