    I just thought I would post a little reminder for all to make sure all those tasks in the manual are performed as suggested. Doing 2 of these probably saved me from a bigger problem down the road.

    #1 - Clean that hydro compartment under the seat!
    #2 - Check and secure bolts ( you know you are guilty of skipping it)

    I was doing all my stuff today. As I cleaned out around the hydro area, I checked to make sure ll the bolts were in place and secure. But I did miss checking 2 bolts. The back bolts on the hydro pumps (hard to see much less check for tightness). But in my laziness I did manage to give the pumps a good solid wiggle. To my surprise, the left one moved!

    I shook my head in ignorance like nah that didn't move...or did it? After another shake I'm like HUH ??? After looking around I saw the rear mount bolt and lock nut were both gone!

    I'm glad I caught it when I did....check those bolts...all of them!
