Depends what type of loctite you want to use.

There is the: removable loctite, threadlocker, medium strenght, high strenght, etc...

If you are referring the a WR or YZ, the owners manual indicates when and where you have to loctite.

Also you have to respect the torque spec, if it still loosen after proper torque, then I'm sure a removable loctite would do a good job. :)

Blue loctite for sure. Check your sidestand bolts. It's a drag when you lose one on the trail.
