20K Service: Loose front sprocket nut!

Part of the 20 000km service was change of the chain and so the front and rear sprockets. The chain would definitely last longer if only some of the X rings were not missing... already for 10 000km.

 

I was very surprised to find the front sprocket nut not stoked (as it should be) and pretty much completely loose, instead of being tight at 95Nm.

 

May be worth checking yours...
