    I bought a pack of these at the local home improvement store. Among other names, they're called serrated belleville washers. Been running them on my 2015 now for a couple of months, and unlike before when the knobs would loosen on their own accord, the knobs are staying tight.

    Well, I had some difficulties to find out the name of this in french, but ok now  :012:

    I think I will give a try when I receive the new know.

    PS : now that i tend to tighten less, both loosen by themselves everyday  :157:

    Yes... exactly what I did  :006:

    Just a thought, but do you have both plastic washers (part numbers 13272 and 92210B) installed as shown below? Though the fastening system differs between your 2019 and my 2015, the same principle for clamping is used for each. When I bought my bike used it had an aftermarket windshield on it. I found later when I disassembled things, that one plastic washer of each type was missing. Those plastic washers if missing, may also play a part in things loosening up too.

    I have also found, that snugging and tightening the knobs incrementally going back and forth between knobs, until both are tightened fully, keep them from loosening easier too.

    Loctite purple (222) is lower strength than blue.

    I second investugating the plastic washer. I had a similiar issue when I purchased my 2016 used. The PO had some work done requiring the upper fairing to be removed. Who ever did the work left out the rectangular plastic piece and had the order if the other hardware mixed up. I fabricated the rectangular pieces from a sheet of rubber, rearranged the other bits and my Puig snugs up nicely.
