Reminds me of that guy a little while back who thought the cotter pin (split pin for those of us who speak English ) was 'optional'.

Terminology is so confusing.
Cotter pin is the old fashion thing that held crank's on bicycles and sometimes kick starters which had a tapered slot down one side ending by the thread which was pushed through the hole and was held in place by tightening nut the other side to stop it coming out, like a wedge really.
Split pin just pushes through the hole and end's are bent over to stop it from coming out.

Another example of two countries separated by a common language.

This is what holds the GS160 swing thing to the end of the fork. When I bought my GS in its dilapidated state, it had a huge carpenter's nail bent over through the hole - very nicely bodged. Much improvements have taken place since those days.

Who needs a tank when you can hire a kid with a bottle so cheaply?

Had something similar happen to me. Can personally vouch for cotter pin necessity. Rear wheel popped off on my way to work because of a worn cotter pin. Thankfully the tire got caught under the bike, in the hub so I didn't wipe out.

It was pretty scary though.
