Maybe the nuts have just fallen off?
Or were never fitted in the first place !

Pic of either area will help to determine what’s going on. Seems suspicious that both would snap or fall off ?

Re: Two port fan housing

Definitely go OG - aftermarket may be nice and shiny, but it doesn’t help your engine.

Re: Safari window catches

I use Creative Engineering ones and there’s quite a load on them with new seals. No issues and work very well.

Bike attachment for Westy style roofrack
