If it's not very good it's not cheap. 
Stay with Loctite Various products in different strengths Great product.

By the way if you apply heat to loctite it will loosen up. Powerful air dryer will do the job if worried about paint. To avoid pain and suffering don't tell the wife!

On this occasion heat didn`t work, neither heat gun or blow torch made any difference, but these bearings will have lain untouched for 37 years so not sure what bearing lock would have been available then.

Had same problem with headstock bearings on 1000s and that was only 28 years old. When all else fails dremel essential tool

Does anyone have any pictures or a link to a schematic of the dash + headlight mountings on a MONZA. I think I have all the fittings but am wondering whether there are rubber bushes for the dash mounting bracket where they fit on the forks or are they just trapped between headstock and headlight bracket bushes.
