Which color locktite

Which color locktite should be used on the screws that hold the brake rotor to the front wheel of a 1919 K1200LT?

I could play with women or with cars, I find cars are cheaper and you can write a book about cars a guy would understand.

Re: Which color locktite

You're supposed to use Locktite?? I've just torqued the rotor bolts to the correct spec and ridden off. 140K plus miles over the last 6 years and haven't had a rotor come loose yet.

But as Grif used to say: "What ever color tastes the best, that's the one to use."

Manual states Loctite 243 which is medum strength blue liquid. I prefer the "lipstick" solid my self as it doubles as a lip balm.
