    lOCTITE USE

    i am not seeing any callout for thread locker in the manual. I know other bikes and snowmobilies I work on, the manual was very specific where and what type of thread locker to use. Are people using thread locker when they work on these bikes, partcularly inside the motor?

    Quick answer would be appreciated

    People (mostly male) wearing suspenders for the trousers, sock suspenders AND belts will use it.


    But they have to know the good tricks how to unscrew these loctited bolts.


    Using the correct torque (without Loctite) will be okay.

    Thanks god that does not describe me. at least yet, LOL

    I do know of people that do not understand the different loctites available and have used permanent or sleeve insert locktite for putting in nuts and bolts, There is a difference. I mainly see callouts for that from certain vendors, Kawasaki, and snowmobiles (2-stroke)

    Thanks for the help, I will just follow the torque specs in the manual

    Not really

    Look here.

    In 1953, American professor Vernon K. Krieble developed anaerobic threadlocking adhesives in his basement laboratory at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. Krieble’s company, American Sealants, founded the Loctite brand, which was promoted as ushering in a new era of mechanical reliability by eliminating the vibrational loosening of mechanical fasteners, a frequent cause of machine failure.
    ...and so on.

    No vibrations no Loctite

    I use blue lock tight on almost every bolt, screw on a motorcycle. I like the blue in a paste form. A little dab will do you. There is no issue undoing the fastener. It also cuts down on corrosion and makes removal easier.

    On my big Diesel marine engines I use never seize everywhere.

    Most folks do not use these items because they are too lazy to take a few seconds and do it right. Same thing goes for the torque wrench. You don't use it because your are lazy.

    Taken over by Henkel, which seems to be taking over all companies that make sticky, goopy things. Also Ablestick, probably others.
