I've searched on here and on the internet in general to no avail... i'm putting the ring gear on my 02 Viper for the electric start install. It calls for loctite 648 but I can not find this stuff for the life of me. Local parts store lists it, but they can not get it. Anyone know what the permatex equivalent is for this? there is a green permatex, which says it is supposed to be applied AFTER assembly, and there is also a permatex high temp red that says its good for 450F and above. the red says its for ring gear bolts and the green says its for pressed parts like sleves and stuff. I beleive the 648 was also for pressed parts but yamaha called for it to be put right on the threads? So i guess i'm just a litle confused about which one I should use, I don't want any problems down the trails. I can still get the 648 from yamaha, but its $40 for a 10ml bottle. part number ACC-21443-00-00. the permatex is only about 7 and I only need it for the 6 bolts holding the ring gear on. Any help here would be great. thanks!
