Default Re: Loc-Tite or lock nuts - which is better?

I use the stock nuts & bolts with the stock lock washers for everything!
I toss the flat washers & only use the lock washers everywhere.
I use red loctite on the engine mounts & exaust only...
I don't over tighten anything & I NEVER have any probems with the bolts coming loose!!!
After a few weeks of riding a new bike, I will "re-snug" all the bolts... after that, they're good for a very long time!

The trick is really to toss the flat washers & not over torque...
