I picked my scooter up from the dealers after having the "correct" nut fitted, the mechanic told me that the there is actually nothing wrong with "incorrect" nut and it is exactly the same as the "slotted or black" nut.

He went on to say that allegedly the problem was just that the nuts were not torqued into place properly at the factory.

Your mileage may vary.

PS: On my bike the nut cannot be seen through the oil level hole with oil in the bike.

Edit: I took my bike off the trailer leaned it over to the left to let any oil drain away, and yes you can see the nut through the oil level hole. It's toward the upper left.

Took my bike in to dealer 4 weeks ago tomorrow. Still no word on when I'll be getting it back. If you can get the nut yaself I would do that.

I bought a new EC 300/19 last week and asked my dealer if the nut needs to be checked but he said no.

He said its a later 2019 model and it is not affected. How can he know? Do they have a list with VIN numbers. I doubt he tells the truth...
