…I’m a Nuclear Design Engineer. The issue here is an issue of shear which is where the benefits of the higher tensile bolts comes into play…..
A noocleehar whatsit? 😉 Well, I’m a garbage man. Ok, maybe not, but I aspire to be one one day.
Anyway, just to throw gas on the fire… On my two bikes, one was an issue of loosening bolts, the other was just shear.
So you’re both right.
