Screws/nuts going loose and loosing them...

Question, I have this 2004 FE501 for little over a year now (bought new) and for about the sixt time some srew/nut/bolt came of the bike! Is that 'normal' for the KTM built Husabergs (never experienced this with my 470). Or might there be some other reason for it..? (e.g. some vibration in the bike due to a disbalance in the engine, which causes srews to shake out..?)

Maybe some of you have some experience with this.

Thanks again and goodbye!

yeah it happens on just about every bike I've ever had. Threadlocker or loctite is your friend in that department.
