    If your pushing on it while riding, fix it so you don't. Don't be tempted into using anything like Loctite, that would be a mistake. Use some internal star washers or something like that to keep it tight..

    + 1 on Hooples suggestion. Had a problem on my sportster and softie with the connections getting loose, added star washers = no problem.
