    The plastic center caps on fuel rims will have a bad reaction to lock-tight, I thought a little on the two Allen screws would assure them from coming loose over time. A chemical reaction will make the plastic fall apart. Never seen that before.20171215_142535.jpg

    What kind of loctite did you use. There's a specific formula of loctite for plastic, the others eat plastic

    I remember when this happened to a pal of mine when he tried to locktite the screws that held his bindings to his snowboard. The plastic becomes brittle.
