Yz125 cylinder/head studs

I am going to be replacing all of the cylinder and head studs on my 2011 yz125 and wondering what type of thread locker/etc. should be used when the new studs are put in.

The Yamaha service manual doesn't specify any threadlocker to be used on the head studs, just a torque value of 9.4 ft/lb.


If you insist on using some preventatively, I'd use medium strength 'blue' Loctite (#242?) rather than high strength 'red'.

Red Loctite for semi permanent, or blue Loctite if you want to remove them without saying bad words.

I have never used loctite.  I always use proper torque settings.
