Amen, I coated some permanent lock tite on it. I hopping one and done. No big deal if it sells or not. If you know anyone who could use a complete R Seat let me know it's free just pay to ship. I rescued it from being thrown out. It's in excellent shape .I think it came off the 1800. I have the C model.You never know when you might need a spare.
Darn, thx for the info. It's got red on it now. Will have to check before every ride.The RED Loctite? It is more permanent than the BLUE, but RED releases under high heat. BLUE doesn't. Yet RED is used on the disc rotor bolts, which can get pretty hot sometimes. There is supposedly a GREEN Loctite, but I have no knowledge or experience with it.
I had to take my tip off to repack the exhaust. I actually just wrapped the perforated tube with header wrap (so basically it is a straight pipe now).I do also ,just ignorant on the use of permanent. The tips never have to be removed. It won't take much effort to check anyway, since I check the tires every ride.
Don't panic, it releases under high heat, not normal heat. To be sure read up on its specs.Eeep. Red loctite comes off with heat? Didn't know.
Will need to re-do a lot of bolts with blue loctite. Ugh. Might as well. It's 30-some F outside. Not riding anyway. Waiting for the weekend, hoping for 70s again.
