Dirt Bike magazine said not to put loc tite on axles, however, there is not a castle nut and cotter pin on the dub-r and my axle nut has loosened after a few rides. Did I just not torque the nut tight enough? Are you using loc tite?

Torque it to 60 pounds and it should not come loose.

No problem with my WR axle bolt coming loose, but I have experienced loose Sprocket bolts, that I check every ride and have now lock tited...

Mine was getting loose all the time almost after each ride. I just had to replace the axle and nut so I haven't had a chance to find out if it is still happening.
