I've got a 2018 yz250f and I've lost 2 seat fasteners on my last two rides. Has anyone else experienced this? Can anyone suggest some actions?

I've never used loctite on the seat bolts and never had them come loose at all.

What special bolts? My 2016 doesn't have any kind of special seat bolts.

I lost one on my 14 450, but that was my fault for not tightening it. Otherwise, ive had no issues

I've never needed to either. It's not like I'm not tightening the properly, I put the second one in before my ride yesterday - torqued to specifications

Blue Loctite, as stated above.

Also, check your subframe bolts. You want to eliminate vibration wherever possible.
