Hi, Since I here so many stories about the Starter clutch bolts backing out and taking the stator out with it I decided to check them. I installed a new starter clutch and bolts about a year ago and I Believe the new bolts came with Blue on them. They all were tight and but I removed them all anyway ( I left Flywheel on ATV and took the 6 bolts out I probably should have done them 1 at a time but I didn't ) I used plenty of blue and tightened them to 12 FT. My OEM Book did not have a spec or a loctite Recommendation. 11.8 and Blue was what I found while searching. After the Job I searched more and found Red is recommended more so then Blue and 8 FT seems to be a popular torques Spec. I have the cover off still waiting for a gasket SO I could pull them back out and use Red if you guys think I should and what torque? Thanks
