Seems every one is bored with the stay at home order if this is the best conversation we can come up with--I see nothing wrong with the Honda set up if you want to use nylock nuts use them but I see no advantage
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

Just drill through the end of the screw, not the nut and install a small pin or better yet, safety wire. This way the 12mm can't fall off.

Oh yeah. Yes, my Husqvarna breaks because it has 13mm's on it.
