Hot enough you can't hold your finger on it but not sizzling hot and the lock tite will be pliable and turn loose. Cool em off and the lock titeresets again.Air or elec. impact also works pretty well:waving:Keno
The bolts come from Honda with a red thread lock applied but it's not as strong as Locktite RED. Whenever I reinstall a set of disc bolts I use just a mini-drop of the BLUE Locktite instead. Honda calls for the bolts to be replaced after every application but I don't feel that it's necessary if you apply a locking agent... like Locktite BLUE.
But you've got to get them off. A brand new 6mm allen socket that fits tight is a first thing to have. Then maybe a little heat from a propane torch applied to the external threads...but on the 1800 wheel it's not easy to apply heat to the wheel/threads. Normally a good strong hand will take care of removal but my favorite method is using a hand impact driver and a very large hammer:weightlifter:
great info,i'll need to check mine,removed with 1/2'' impact at 500ft lb...zing,and reinstalled with my 1/4'' impact at 60ft lb. in the spring,never used new bolts or any loctite.
best to check mine over again me thinks.
the reason for useing new bolts is that the bolts strech when being torqued and then never go back to orignal lenght. so best to use new bolts and blue lock tite. also never use lock tite of any kind on screws that touch the plastic. this will cause the plastic to melt and the piece being attached can fall off . this is experience talking
