Sports bars seem to loosen up

I just got my ninja, its in great shape and the previous owner installed some mods already. It has the sport bars and the left tube seems to always be loosening at the bracket.

I had to pull over last night while I was in downtown houston to open the tool kit for the first time to see if there was an allen key to tighten the bar end.

Does anyone else have this issue? It ended up just being some loose bolts. Im thinking of putting some blue loc-tite on them haha!
