DNA Springer question.
 
I have a Springer front end and was wondering if I need to add Loctite on the nuts that hold the axle in place? Is this necessary?

Absolutely!

I drilled some dimples in the axle and then put some grub screws in the locking nuts to keep them from moving :D

"grub screws" is that like set screws?

Should I use Blue or Red Loctite?

Def use red

I did not use any on mine and been riding it for two years now with no problems. Just tighten them up really tight. If I was going to loc tight it would be with blue just to make it a bit easier to take the nuts off when time to replace the tire.

blue only.. with red 9 times out of 10 you will need heat to remove them

rodster55 02-03-2010 07:59 AM

Used blue on mine also.

chaoscycle 02-03-2010 08:08 AM

hell no i use red and torque to harley specs, a springer wants to losen an axle nut through twisting, better to use heat to remove than lose the front wheel.

donald branscom 02-03-2010 06:49 PM

I would use blue Locktite.
If you are really worried, you can drill them and use safety wire.
Even if the nut came off the axle on a DNA springer, the axle is captured and the entire axle would have to slide all the way out to loose the front wheel.

Harley specs??? Wouldn't you want to use the specs that DNA ,the manufacturer, suggests?

Agreed. If only DNA gave any specs, or instructions for that matter. I would like to order parts for my DNA springer but cannot find out how or where?

chaoscycle 02-07-2010 01:21 PM

dna gives no specs, nor would they be able to tell you with out talking to a chinese engineer, also the wheel wouldnt come loose huh , ask kendal johnson about that.
