Red label Loctite is a great product but has no place on a motorized bicycle. It is nearly impossible to loosen a fastener unless heat is applied which can usually cause more damage than what can happen with a loose bolt/nut. If you want/need a thread locking compound use the blue label product, never the red. Especially on a steel to aluminum assembly.
