I'm going to install radiator and oil cooler guards and wondering if bolts should be loctited (blue).

The guard bolts could be. I wouldn't do the fairing bolts.

I met a guy a couple days ago, that showed me what loctite did to his upper fairing on his FJR after trying that "fix".....cracked plastic, loctite basically ate it, $300 replacement, be careful.

I do not know what colour bottle he used, but I'd approach with caution, I'd never seen that before, won't soon forget.

Don't use threadlocker on plastic. It will crack it. It doesn't matter what color you use. Threadlockers are strictly made for metal fasteners.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I think I'll just not use loctite for this job. The radiator guard mounts by using the two lower fairing bolts which go into the radiator mount. The oil cooler guard is just a replacement for the original, just one screw.
