I thought that was auto seize. Is that solder or safety wire?
I don't read cruiser mags, so it couldn't have come from there
Bare

Good catch.

Its a spool of stainless steel lock wire.

I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

Gracias...never heard of Green Loctite before.

 The 290 green is not for all applications. Read the recommendations carefully and use you best judgment.

Loctiting seems to be the standard of care for RE's. Do you need power tools to take off any of these nuts/bolts?

I'm looking to do all of the basic/non-life-threatening maintenance to my bike so that leads to my next question. What are some must have tools for beginners?

The blue kind is the basic one.  It holds things on but can be disassembled with hand tools.  The red requires heat or power tools to take apart.  The green can be applied after assembly and just pulls itself into the threads by capillary action.  There's another for nylon fasteners and I think a few more I've forgotten.

+1!!!  Don't use #290 on anything you'd rather not take a torch to to get undone!!

Loctite says Green requires common hands tools to disassemble, but may require localized heating to 500 F if the fastener won't budge.  For Blue, Loctite says heat to 482 F if it won't budge!  :o

You can get the technical data sheets by looking up each product at the Loctite website and choosing "Technical Data" in that product description.  Here's Green 290:

Yes, yes. Always go by the loctite number not the color. There is at least two different compounds colored blue that i have used and two greens as well.

The three little screws on the stock heat shield need to be loctited. Those actually hold the stock muffler on!

Use the numbers if you want but I still go by the flavor.

It tastes awful.  :(
Blue will do 99% of what you need to do and come apart with regular hand tools.

Obviously, you just haven't developed the sophisticated palette required to appreciate it.  Keep at it, you will.  ;)
