Great info., also, for ppl planning to drill nuts like this, a fixture for your drill press is highly recommended

Iíve never understood those studs Ducati uses with the recessed area on the end.
Nothing real fancy but good enough to pass tech inspection and no, sprocket bolts donít need it for any racing organization I know of.

I'll look into The Sargent. Sounds perfect as that's my next upgrade - need a better seat than the stocker...

Image #3 ... some safety wring examples. Note how the twisted wire is always "pulling tight" on the fasteners. Also note that every fastener in that image is a bolt, not a nut. Which is why they are drilled "across the center" rather than drilled across the corner of each flat, which is how a properly drilled nut looks as seen in Image #2.

That old tool still works just fine.
It isn't hard to do ... the main idea is to have the wire wrap the fastener so that it is always pulling the fastener "tight". When wiring two or more fasteners together, each fastener has to wrapped in that fashion ... so that the wire pulls on the fastener in the proper direction so that it's always pulling them tight. In the case of a nut on a stud, the stud itself is not drilled, only the nut is. The wire does not get threaded through any holes in the stud ... if the stud is drilled a cotter key is more appropriate.
What was demonstrated on that hub a few posts back was not an example of safety wiring, it was an example of fakery with the intention of "looking like" safety wiring. The person that posted it is fully aware of that and commented as such.
