I’m always skeptical when I see new things in the garage department especially when certain items have worked for my old man and the industry for years.

Here I present from Permatex, orange thread locker:
163832


I am an absolute $lut when it comes to threadlocking everything on my bike. Today I replace woodcraft foot pegs and while at home depot(for an air filter) I swung by the tools and recalled my Loctite Blue was running low. Saw this but as skeptical as I was I kept with the old faith blue until I did more research.

Blue has always served me well but that orange looks promising, I’m a locktite simp as well! Learned a lesson recently after locktiting the screws on my tank side scoops... had to remove them and promptly broke the stick on the side covers housing the clip-on threads 😩

Side note, I probably wouldn’t replace the stock air filter with a Home Depot furnace filter. Bigger doesn’t always mean better😋

The drips will match my bike.... lol I'd throw a bolt in the vise. Throw some on and see how it plays out once set up. I'd be interested to see if it's really better. I wonder if this is the official fix for the ******** mixing red and blue but with a better color outcome.

You've got to be kidding me. I already have red for high strength and then blue to be more easily removable and now you tell there is orange. This is difficult to comprehend. How many strengths are there? Are there purple, yellow and green? When does it all end. I thought I bought everything I could possibly spend $ on. O the humanity...........

And there’s also green! 🤪 It’s a penetrating threadlocker that you can apply after the fastener is in place (I’ve never tried it)...

Different brands. Blue is Loctite, this is a competing product.
My red and blue Loctite will tend to last at least 5 years before I lose the cap or something, so I have no reason to jump ship.

Permatex has there own blue as well. This is something that has different properties than blue

I think the interweaved colours must be stronger. Like carbon fibre. Or crochet.
