just wondering if anyone had any tips on keeping my oil slinger tight. its a gpx 124 all stock besides a kitaco i.r.k.

i will be keeping the inner rotor on it so i gotta find a way to cure this. do they make lock tight that works under high heat and oil?

let me know what has to be done so i can keep riding!!!

thanks,

dave

I haven't had to use loctite on the oil sling retaining nut yet... something else is amis here. Is the washer still decently conical, or have you crushed the life out of it. Is the nut bottoming rather than torquing agasinst the washer?

yeah worst case scenario if you cant get it undone after using red loctite some heat from a torch will break the loctite down and it will come undone easily

You shouldn't need loctite, that slinger nut has grooves in it and the washer has tangs that you bend down into the groove, that will keep the nut from backing off even if it is loose. Don't forget to align the washers tangs on the backside into the slinger grooves. If you need a pic, I can get one for ya.
