You should seek out this info from the manual.

Some bolts may take locktite and some may not. I would think hardley any, if at all will need locktite.

Too many bolts to be listed.

Maybe some one has a list they can post for you.

It's ALOT of bolts! The two most common specs are PFT and RFT but probably not the standards you'll wanna use! Look in your manual, be a pain tracking em all down but they sure look pretty when your done. Like a hundred little diamonds sprinkled on you motor compared to the stockers. My bike was 4 years old when I put em on so my stockers didn't look to great.
Have fun!

Yep going to have to look up. Thats alot of differant bolts. I been looking at the standard kit, ss 99&up. $70. Do the rocker cover bolts have the indention for 3/16??
What are the factory bolts made out of? Been worrying alittle bit about using the wrong type of metal.

Notice there head bolts are 6 and not 12 pnt. Would 12pnt heads have better gripping. I always use 6pnt sockets for 6pnt bolts. So not sure if a problem.

Most of the stock cover bolts take loctite. The HD ones will come with thread locker already on them. If yours don't have it, blue is generally the answer for these. The manual will have the torque ratings you need.

Didn't use any locktite on outer primary or anythin on it. Blue for some of the rest. Don't use red. Use blue. Read the manual. Most of thse will be in engine assembly.

I agree if your using factory bolt kits they come with the proper locktite patch already, but after market kits you should always use blue if in doubt!
In general if you dont have a manual go with these:
1/4" fasteners (outer-primary, cam-cover, tappet-covers, trans-side/top covers ) use blue loctite....80~120 in.lbs.
5/16" fasteners ( top rocker box covers ) 15~18 ft.lbs. ( 156~192 in.lbs ) blue locktite.
Hope this Helps!!

Torque values are different for SS. A sheet comes with your set if you bought from Alloyboltz. I believe you need to use neversieze or locktite because of the difference in metals.

Stainless shouldn't react with aluminum.

Okay then....

So why would the stainless react with the aluminum and not the zinc plated bolts that come stock on the bikes? Seriously.

I have the stainless bolts. Is this a loctite thing or an anti sieze thing? So far in this thread we have two opinions that are 180 degrees out of sync.

Do not use the CAM COVER torque specs in the Manual!! You will crack your case. Use 90-120 INCH/lbs( plus a dab of Blue Loctite for stock bolts). I also used a tap to clean out all the holes to make sure there was no corrosion or oil in them.

Can ya scan the sheet and email it to me? Dealer must have neglected to include the instruction sheet with the remainder of the bolts he returned to me.
