Battery screws coming loose
1) My screws that connect to my battery seem to be coming loose every 300 or so miles. Not loose enough that the bike won't start but loose enough to notice when I remove the seat. Any recommendations for this? I"ve heard "star washers" specifically can help? Is loctite a bad idea?
2) Also my bike has a hard time starting even after riding on the freeway for over an hour. I generally have to hold start and give it some gas to get it fired up. Would cleaning the carbs be a good troubleshooting step?
Sorry for the basic questions, been riding for 2 years and pretty new to turning the wrench
