Default Re: Very FIRST Build. Anything im missing? (PICS)

Throw the red Loctite in the trash. It has no business on a motorized bicycle. If you ever need to disassemble something the red will hold...the threads will not. This is especially true with steel fasteners in an aluminum case.
As DaveC suggested, buy a torque wrench and use it. Overtightening the fasteners is the single most common problem with first time builders. Use that torque wrench and avoid fastener/thread failure.
Good luck. Let us know how you're doing.
