Looking over my newly purchased (2nd hand) 2002 620 I see that there are two bolts per cylinder head on the left side that come out and have open nuts on them. The preivous owner has applied rigourous amounts of engine grease presumably to avoid these collecting water/grime and seizing down the track. On a naked bike this is a magnet to grime. Has anybody found an alternative ? Can you get closed cap nuts that fit the shaft of the protruding bolts ? Has anyone else thought this was a problem ??

Same two bolts on the right side, too. There's not much room between the head and the cam cap to fit any other type of nut. When I had my cyinder studs made, I had option to have nuts made, too, but decided to stick with the OE setup.
