Gear pedal pivot bolt sheered this morn, on the M60 - which was nice! I changed gear by hand and limped the last couple of miles

Anyway, Hunts had one and every bolt on the hanger cracked immediately making removal of the snapped stud a doddle. It literally turned itself out, drilling from footpeg side.

So, do I threadlock the new one in? I'm thinking not... just in case, but is it a done thing?

I personally am not too keen on the stuff & torque things up to the specified torque.


But if I do use it, I find myself using it on "serious consequences bolts" such as cam shaft sprocket bolts, Manual cam chain tensioner fastenings & the like. I never use it on aluminium castings though.

Be aware that the different colours represent different strengths :thumbup:


Also, don't guess & tighten things up till they snap & then back it off half a turn ;) :thumbup:
