I pulled the rotors from my front wheel to polish the wheel.
What's an easy way to get the old Red Loctite off the bolts?

At work we use heat to remove then a tap or die to chase threads

If the bolts are locked in place and you heat them to 400 degrees it will reactivate (melt) the Loctite.

OK this may not be Red Loctite. These bolts came out easily using a 3/8 socket wrench. Bike has 39K on the clock so I'll assume the Red stuff is from the factory.

What did the factory put on the Disc Bolts that is Red in color.

Honda loctite colors do not match commercial thread locker colors.


The red thread locker used by honda is a high temp medium strength product, Hondalock 2HT.
I have zero connection with rockyMt, they just carry most of honda's chemicals. honda's thread lockers are usually half the price of loctite at the local store.

I use the steel brush side of my bench grinder to clean threads. Then apply blue loctite for most. I don’t ever use the red. Where you have heat, like exhaust, there not going anywhere.

If I clean them, tap or die to chase threads or if dealing just with bolt, a wire brush. Usually ain't much left on them anyway.
