I think the biggest problems I had were with the newbie Harley owners. They automatically thought they knew their bikes, because after all, they were "Harley Owners".
Had a hell of a time explaining what "snugging down" ment. Used to keep 1/4 x 20 Heli Coils on hand by the hundreds. Used to be able to Heli Coil an inspection cover thread in less than 5 minutes.
They would torque those screws down like they were putting a wheel lug nut on. Don't even get me started on brake reservoir cover screws/threads.
Sport bikers were never a problem, nor were the BMW or other import owners. Only the Harley owners.

Those Harley owners didn't likely start out on bicycles and dirt bikes, that they had to fix for themselves while "growing up". Towns all around here right now are full of the Harleys, they're having some attempted world record today over in N TX, largest motorcycle group or something. They still dress like Hell's Angels but are mostly Drs and lawyers, salesmen/women and such

If you're too dumb to read the word RED or BLUE you deserve to have your nuts fall off.
And what if, like some of the members here, and half of the world's population, you don't have any?

Permatex has blue bottles for everything. The little banner is the same color as the juice.

Same with loctite. Green is the pimp stuff. I use green 99% of the time unless I know I'm never removing the bolt... then red.
