Red or blue threadlocker

Post by Old Buck »



My question for the day,
I am a first timer at changing timing belts and in the process of changing the timing belts on my 2000 GL 1500 SE and following the Tutorial. I am now looking at installing the new belts. My question is I am to use red threadlocker on the belt tensioner bolts and wondering how tough it will be to remove the bolts in the future and if blue threadlocker is sufficient.
Thanks so much
Old Buck

Good day from Nova Scotia,
When I did mine I just torqued the bolts. I didn’t use any thread locker. You could use the blue one if you’d like. The red one is almost as good as welding :shock: Not a good idea in my opinion.

It's not a Harley. You don't need threadlocker at all. The Goldwings don't vibrate enough need anything more than Proper torque.

If I don't do Facebook or Twitter do I still have to do Social Media Distancing????


Those who say it cannot be done should try not to interrupt those who are doing it.
