After today's ride, I return to find that once again, a bolt that hold on the heatshield near the shock has gone walkies. This is the 3rd time it's done this now. Anyone got anything to suggest? It's gonna be tight enough each time as last time I put one in, I did it tight as, just before the point where the tool would start to round off in the head. Usually it goes in with blue loctite but mustn't last too long it seems!

I'd be tempted to just remove the heat shield. Some people wrap rear header and some ceramic coat. 

On the Gen1 and early Gen2 they didn't have the shield. Or if it's never coming off I'd weld it on at the screw fixing points perhaps
