Right hand air 'cleaner' cover popping off

I'm having an issue with my right hand air cleaner cover popping off while riding.

It's a bit frustrating.

The allen head bolt stays nice and tight, but the metal insert that it screws in to is actually coming loose from the air intake side of things.

I can smack it with my hand and push it back in to place, but I'd rather not...

Any thoughts on getting that to stay in place?

I'm hesitant to use epoxy, as once set, if it comes out again, I will then have a bunch of epoxy to clean up from a very tight place.

Thoughts and input are welcome!

I ended up using some loctite 241 as it was what was available locally -

So far - so good - no further issues at this time -

I guess time will tell.

I appreciate the heads up filichezst8k.

Seems we need an additional option on the master flow chart.
