Default Re: Ins and Outs (perhaps?) of Red Threadlocker

I would stick with the blue. 300 year supply won't do much good. as it'll dry out a long time before that. I usually buy smaller bottles for that reason, but this is Texas.

I can't think of any part on a motor bicycle that really needs the red. If you use red, try to use only the smallest amount possible. More than 1 molecule and you need to heat the bolt to unscrew it.. I usually use a propane torch. It doesn't need to be too hot, just warmish, but the warmer the better. You can also use a heat gun, like used for heat shrink tubing. That will take a little longer. Red is over kill.

The blue works great and you don't need heat to get it apart.

Do exactly as I say because my wife says, I know it, and it all, or something like that.
