Nylock nuts are available at True Value. Just stock 10 or so of 6mm. The only 8mm are the head I think - can't use Nylock nutz there. The are some small screws - 4 mm and 5mm as well, no??

Yes..If you use loctight, and you bought your engine from me, you will void your warranty. You will ruin the motor. First of all, loc tight is not necessary , . I have done over 300 installs with thousands and thousands of miles, and never had to use loctight. First of all, as your motor and bike breaks in, you will need to tighten your nuts and bolts down more. Loc tight will not aid you or help in this. Also, if you use the wrong loctight, you will prevent the tightening or removal of nuts and bolts. If you have a concern with a nut getting lose, go to a nyloc or double nut them. If you use glues, you will ruin those connections or at least make those connections hard to deal with or maintain. thanks.. Enjoy the ride..

so far nothing has fell off my bikes except me will loctite help with that?
Naw! I do use it on the bikes along with lock washer all of my hardware is what came with the bike engine kits I 've installed the parts and have yet to re tighten them except the head bolts on the Dax engine and I believe they came loose due to heat cycles but still haven't had anything fall off and no sheared mounting bolts. One chain guard broke by the engine due to vibs. and I re welded it.
Could it be I'm taking them apart too much to do how to posts?
Maybe the god of tight nuts is smiling on me!

sounds vaguely pornographic
My posts have entertainment value only. A bike ain't yours till it has your blood on it. Then it owns you.
