Re-torqueing bolts-quick question

When you re-torque bolts with threadlocker on them that are already in place, do you first remove them, clean, and reapply threadlocker, or do you just re-torque them in place. Which is the best way? New bike vibrates a lot so I was just curious.

This is just my opnion...

I would remove the bolts and wipe down and then add new loctie and re-tourqe. You really dont want to keep having to do this. After so many touqes the bolts can and will mess up. Then when you think your tourqing at lets say 14lbs , it'll end up being 25lbs.

the locktite only bonds once I'm pretty sure. Check their website.

I always remove and reapply. I just spray the threads with brake cleaner or starter fluid to clean since it dries real fast (unless the spray could get on paint). If rusty then I'd use a wire brush.

If your using green, step it up to blue flavor locktite

also, if your talking about threads in aluminium, thats much different than threads in steel

be very careful with aluminium, it will fail easy
