NO Red, red is not made to come off.

Just torque dry, and check torque after a ride.

you may use Blue at times but not in this case. The manual will tell you when to use it.

When you use any liquid on a bolt you need to adjust for a Wet torque, for example some linkage bolts require oil on the threads per OEM Service manual prior to torque. They already figured the correct wet torque value and state that in the manual
