    RIOT - I read in another post - same problem..
    I think that what ever holds it down is either loose or missing...

    HT engine, right? Simple - tighten the nut a bit. (Access with air cleaner removed)

    7 mm wrench, if I remember right.

    Fairly common issue

    Be careful, its brass and can strip if you overtighten it.
