Totally wrong on Loctite screwing up the torque - Locktite is formulated so that the required torque stays the same.

Achieving that was the biggest problem the makers of Locktite faced when they originally formulated the product.

Unless otherwise advised, all torque figures are for clean and dry threads, so there is never any need to state that - it is only when you oil or lube them that it has to be stated.

IMHO if you cant afford or just cant bring yourself to fit new bolts each time I think you should seriously consider if you should be riding a bike at all, but I appreciate that not everyone will agree with this viewpoint
