Should I use loctite on my bike engine mounting bolts? I bought some great lock nuts for the bolts, will those work if I tighten up the bolts after my first couple of rides?

Welcome to the forum, I use thread locker on just about everything on a motorized bicycle. Once I tighten something I want it to stay tight. The exhaust studs won't stay tight without it.

Use medium strength thread locker rather than high strength. It holds well but allows much easier removal of the fastener when required.

Lock washers of various types are ok for some fasteners, but thread locker is better & find a broader range of application on bikes and motorcycles.
