Chips episode where they loosen bolts to sabotage Ponch./ I caught it right away. They didn't loosen the pinch bolt so nothing would have happened.

"CHiPs" Dog Gone (TV Episode 1977) - IMDb

Goofs
Neither the KZ900 or 1000 police motorcycles used hex nuts as shown to retain the front axle. Parts catalogs for both motorcycles list round headed collars that thread onto the axle and then are retained by pinch bolts on the bottoms of the forks. Since the pinch bolts were never loosened, it would not be possible for the axle to come loose as shown. In the event the axle did fall out, the entire front wheel would detach resulting in an immediate crash, not the wobbly wheel as shown. See more
