I applied loctite and torqued them to spec when I changed the rear sprocket last spring. After a few rides I checked it again and they were loose. So I did the loctite and torque routine again thinking all was fine.
Finally without warning, on a landing, while I was gassing it, the rear wheel jammed. The rear JT steel sprockect pretzeled and was torn off the hub breaking the bolts bosses on the hub. It cost me mucho $$$ to get a new hub, rear sprocket and have the wheel relaced, and new sprocket bolts.
If you don't want to change the bolts assly, at least do not reuse the jam nut, get new ones.
Happy new year
