Bar end thread lock?
« on: February 09, 2019, 05:29:20 PM »
Hi guys,
I've just had the bolt in the attached picture delivered. It's for the bar end of a 2018.
I noticed when I took the old one out it had (What I presumed) to be thread lock in the threads..... But this one seems to already have it?
Will this just screw in and that's that, or does it need heating first? The old one needed heating before I could get it out.   :087:

Thanks!

Just fit it as it is. It's common to have thread lock pre coated.

Thank you! Despite tinkering with cars and bikes for years, I don't think I've ever come across that...... I went and bought threadlock earlier too!!

As per L2RKE just fit it as it is.

As you found, they are hard to get out and if it was me I'd remove a little of the thread lock before fitting. That's just me though!  :001:
