KTM LC4 Should I use thread locker on rocker cover bolts?

Sorry for asking a question that I know has been asked before. But I am searching and not finding the answer and I need to put my rocker covers back on.

Should I use thread locker on the bolts?

Yes, its not only prevents bolts loosing, but also not seizing.

I normally use low or medium strenght, or pine tar for some parts...

I have never used it and have never had an issue with those bolts coming loose, but that's not to say it can't happen...

Thanks for the feedback. I put them together without the thread lock. I guess I'll have to wait and see if they loosen up at all?
