PSA: chain guard screws

Hi guys,

I noticed while riding on rough road a strange noise, like something went loose. I checked when I arrived home, and it appears the backmost screw securing the plastic chain guard was gone... Never touched it before so maybe it wasn't screwed tightly enough or whatever, but please check it out before it falls on your bike too!

I ended up using a spare screw from the stock rear mudguard that I had stored since I put my R&G tail tidy a few months ago.

Ride safe!

Same problem, the dealer put another on bolt and no issues so far.

Ride thru.
