K series crank bolts.

Hi

I am hoping to fit a new R500 flywheel to my k series when I get some spare time.....I have some new bolts from Rimmer with some patch lock and wondered if it is worth putting a little Locktite on as well (as the bolts could be old stock?). I will clean the Crank threads out with a cut bolt first. Engine is Supersport spec.

Cheers

The patch lock is fine, it is there not to lock the bolt, but to seal the threads and prevent wicking of oil down the threads onto the clutch, I would not bother with extra loctite. By all means clean the threads on the crank.
