Does Suzuki really call for RED loctite there?:bom_ears:It is really a simple procedure.
- Bike on center stand
- Remove front sprocket cover
- Fit a socket onto a breaker bar and put it on the front sprocket bolt, bar facing forwards
- Climb on bike, right foot on rear brake, left foot on breaker bar, push down until bolt loosens
- Loosen rear axle bolt and loosen the chain adjusting bolts on either side of swing arm to let the chain go slack
- Remove front sprocket bolt and washer, then slip chain off sprocket.
- Remove sprocket and replace.
- Put chain back on front sprocket
- Tighten the chain from swingarm adjustment bolts, keep it loose for now
- Front sprocket bolt needs red loctite, put washer and bolt on front sprocket
- Use torque wrench when tightening, same procedure as removal, climb on bike, right foot on brake, torque wrench on bolt with arm forward, reach down and pull UP on it until it clicks, do the click a few times. I have been using 83 ft/lbs
- Adjust chain to correct tension
- Front sprocket cover back on and your done.
I found this document from Loctite. Down on page 7 it claims that their 271 (Red) threadlocker is equivalent to Suzuki 99000-32030 (1303). Of course, that's not to imply they are exactly the same thing, but probably as close as you will get outside of the Suzuki product.
