Primary Nut - Loctite

I realize this is something that needs to be done and I realize it's been talked about a lot. My bike has about 1-2 hours on it and I'm planning a trip to UT next weekend.

Is the risk the same now as it is 500 miles from now? If the risk is low I would like to loctite the Primary nut, Stator Bolts, and Starter clutch bolts after this trip when I install a kick starter.

Please tell me your opinion on this. Thanks.

A bike that new is not a concern, plus you are under warranty. Wait till you return home. Have a safe journey.

Thanks for the advice guys :thumbsup:

I'd use red on these.

There is a risk to everything but I think I'd take that risk on a new bike, at least for those. I'd locktite the ccs nut though.
