Re-using motor mount bolts?

Recommended Posts

It says in the clymers manual to disguard the motor mount fastners after removal. I see tons of used mounts/bolts on ebay but cant seem to find new ones anywhere. Is re-installing these bolts with a dab of loc-tite really that bad of an idea?

My motor has been out a few times and I have never replaced the bolts... Just do not over torque them and they should be fine.  I have never bothered to loctite them and they have stayed tight.

Some lawyer talk.  There are no single use bolts or lock nuts on a Suzuki DRZ400.  Yes, re-use the motor mount fasteners.  And by the way, if Clymer says "bolts", they got it wrong.  It is the friction lock nuts that Suzuki said to replace.
