Help. Clutch lever bolt backs itself out at highway speeds.

Is there supposed to be a nut underneath there, or do I just put some lock-tite on the threads and tighten it down???
I was thinking that a nylon washered locknut would be a good idea, whether or not that is how it is stock. Can't find any info in my Clymer manual. Please advise.\
Thanks, Richie.

Thanks Nico, this is not the first time you've helped me and it probably won't be the last.

Got the nyloc nut in stainless steel from Southport hardware for 50 cents. (a local hardware store here in Ft. Lauderdale). All fixed. Thanx again.
