    Yamaha thread locker?

    Hi,

    I was wondering what the reddish stuff on all of the bolts of my gp1300r is equivalent to? Is it just thread locker, or some kind of sealant or both?

    red loctite on exhaust and cylinder bolts, loctite 592 (white paste) is close to what they use on the rest

    for the cowling and body trim bolts, I dont use anything

    The yellow plastic body pieces, and all of the bolts in the back that are involved when replacing the prop. Possibly the intake grate and shoe as well if it is needed?

    There is a locktite product that has thread locking ability with teflon. Use that on the pump and ride plate area. I think its #572. Not at home right now to check. Dont use red locktite on any thing you want to take off. Espically if your running in salt water!!!

    592 is available at most autoparts stores, and thats what I use in place of 572... or anti-sieze works like Beer stated

    IMO that will cover everything below the water line and the head bolts

    red loctite aint so bad... been using it on exhaust bolts for years with no problems removing it... the key is dont soak the bolt in the stuff lol
