locktite?

I cleaned the bike today. Took almost 2 hours.
Wipe on, take a drink, wipe off, and repeat.
Anyway noticed I am missing two bolts. One of them is a fairing stay(sp) the other is for the tail assy. This is the second time I have lost the one from the tail assy. I have some medium locktite, but am reluctant to use it. Is there something with less hold? Teflon maybe?

Blue Locktite 242 is good for just this kind of thing nad will in fact come loose without heat. Red however is not what you want to use. That requires about 400 deg to loosen

Yah I have both. Never use the red because it's a b@tch to get off. I thought the blue still might be too much? Was hoping there was something of even less strenght.

Regular silicone will work, but be really careful because it can be messy. You don't need much.

Like PBMW said above- Blue Loctite is the way to go, and if your bike is prone to high frequency vibration then check your hardware more often.
