Wink Re: Thread Locking Compounds aka LocTite

I've been using loctite (or equivalent) for decades on all sorts of motored builds and non-motored bikes as well. If the nut isn't a nyloc or other locking type, loctite is a must in many applications. On my 212cc race bike there are a few fasteners that require the dreaded red permanent strength loctite......or some tie-wire. Sometimes it's neccesary to get out the torch and apply a little heat for removing hardware locked with the red.......better safe than sorry I always say

A sense of humor costs nothing, why don't people use them more often?
