    Just to elaborate,
    Ive never had issues with bolts loosening on the TW or other foreign bikes or cars I've owned, Never,
    But on the Harley FLH "Shovelhead era" I actually have to listen for rattles as I have had a couple items vibrate loose,

    Check out these bent bolts...the guy I bought one of TWs from let the front sprocket wear down so far that the chain jumped off. The chain bent these bolts and I had one hell of a time removing them.

    I think 3/8" bolt works well. Maybe 5/16". You don't need metric.
