Re: 40 mile trip EPIC FAIL.. Please Help
just got done reading this whole post. Personalty I would not use any loc tite I never have on a build and after very long rides rarely had a lose nut or bolt. All that said if I was to use loc tite it would be either red or blue but the best fix for nuts that do losen up is a 2nd nut. with to nuts on one stud the 2nd one locking the first one down you will never get a lose nut. its a trick I use to use on high horse power auto exhaust all the time.
one thing I can say is its always good to see someone learning something new and even though I owned my own auto repair shop for about 10 years I learn something new here almost every day and I have to love it.
