Default Re: Thread Locking Compounds aka LocTite

I got an upgraded hardware set this spring, used red loctite on stud/block junctions, then used blue loctite on stud/nut junctions. I had torn down/rebuilt my motor last winter after about 1,000 miles the first year over which it seemed I was always tightening a loose something or other. This year after using loctite I have put about 800 miles on the motor and not had to re-torque one bolt yet. This winter I have the option to put the bike away in one piece because everything is tight and running well, no issues to work on over the winter...
