Yeah me too, till proven recently... (true story)-
You know how RC Helis have a billion little 1.5- 3mm screws that all have to be loctited, then loctite cleaned off & reapplied every time you adjust something (or fix epic spectacular and regular lol) crashes.
But they either strip the alloy thread on the way out anyway or cant be retightened.
I now Anti -seize (almost) everything lol, grub screws never strip, no messy threadlock where you dont want it, and everything comes apart with ease and you can fine tune stuff.
Even the sump bolt & washer cops a bit of Anti-seize.
axles, nuts, fork pinch bolts, lever pivots, gear shifter, sprocket shaft, any thread that is ever worked on.
In 20 yrs time whoever works on my cbr will love me for it haha.
