Question Liquid Gasket?

Hi All,

I'm in the process of installing Sato sliders and GB racing covers.

The Sato slider instructions specify using 'liquid gasket' on bolts that go into the engine casing:

(see the asterisk notation)



The GB's have similar mount points, but don't say anything about using liquid gasket:



Any thoughts on this?

I don't mind finding/buying/using this, but just wondering if this is necessary or if it would just make a mess.

When you remove the stock bolts you will see some have liquid gasket on from assembly. I used some when putting mine on and have no issues/messes. I should check the torque on those bolts again thanks for the reminder

thanks BigBen, I took a closer look at the shop manual. Looks like Ducati specifies Loctite 243 (Medium Strength, Oil Resistant) on these bolts.

I ordered some of this and some liquid gasket.

99.9% of the time you don't need to apply gasket to the bolts since the cases are sealed around the bolt holes.

yeah, I've never heard of putting gasket on the bolts... if anything, I would think they would be referring to locktite or antiseize

When I installed my Trex sliders, there was no mention of loctite or liquid gasket use in the instructions... I didn't use any, just hand torqued them to what I thought was appropriate.
