About to bolt on my new starter clutch and was wondering if I should loctite the 6 bolts that hold the clutch to the flywheel?

The manual makes no mention of it but just 11ft/lbs of torque has me wondering....seem to remember a post which I cannot find about these bolts coming loose on someones bike causing mayhem....

Helmut Klassen (former ISDT medalist and long time KTM dealer) once said "Loctite everything"

If in doubt , loctite it mate .
My kickstart lever flew off while riding the other day , I loctited it back on with the new bolt , wish the last owner did now.
If in doubt , loctite it.
