I would remove the stripped bolt at the very least , you don't want it falling into the engine .... Call Lloyds , he may just send you a new one .I was just using my 1/4 drive socket! Will the blue loctite hold it in? Maybe I should just put my stock one back in until I fix this one?
LMFAO....... Brilliant!My friend, I am going to say something that you should read in the spirit that I write it. I'm fairly sure it's going to fall on deaf ears but hey, I really want you to succeed at this motorcycle thing.
It is this. If your question about the miracle adhesion and retention characteristics of Loktite is the gauge of your skill, a wise course of action would be to step away from the toolbox, do some studifying of the manuals and installation information as well as the tools and equipment that you are using to perform mechanical surgery, and then re approach the issues.
I'm just saying that if the response to stripping threads is to look for interwebs assurance that Loktiting it is a reasonable interim solution, that speaks to a probable fault in your troubleshooting methodology.
But hey, it's your bike. AFAIK there is nothing that you or I can break on one of these things that can't be fixed. Have at it.
Just for the record... to question 1- No. Loktite is not the answer. To question 2- see above, know thy tools, use thy instructions, seek to understand the ways of things. Try to restrain yourself from asking internet advice until those three axioms do not save you from yourself.
Try this please. If not for your own sake then for the sake of your motorcycle.
