Default Tourer tail light tip

The Tourer rear clusters are held in by two screws and a couple of ball head clips

The screws can rust in place and worse they screw into an insert that can break loose and then it will rotate in a totally useless fashion when you try to undo it!

The ball clips can be broken especially if trying to get the cluster off from a rusted screw

I recommend regularly removing the screws and applying some grease say every 6 month or so but at least annually when refitting do not over tighten

I also recommend as they are cross heads that Torx screws are used instead

I noticed this less than ideal design "feature" on my ZT-T.
