I've lost 3 bolts off my mirrors in two rides for some reason. I'm thinking its due to the vibration. The bolts were tightened as tight as I could tighten them and still they fly off. I was wondering if locktite or tread lock would be a good idea for the bolts holding the mirror because I can't think of another solution.

Yes, the blue locktite that has a medium hold so u can loosen it in the future.

Use blue locktite, if they are still vibrating out then you have a bigger problem

I got 2 at the dealer but then I saw they also sold a box of generic bolt/clip/etc kit for sportbikes for $20 and bought it. Has most of the bolts we need for our bikes.

Thread-lock...(not lock tight)

hurm87: ummm what bigger problem could it be?

if it's still coming loose than use the "stronger" ones is red. but i doubt you'll need the ref ones. you only need the medium strength (blue). the red ones is more applicable for the parts that has stronger vibrations or the ones that you don't touch that often (soothing like frame sliders, bolts on the axles...well you got the idea :)

Red loctite is 'stud locker'. You use this one on things that you don't want to get apart again... at least not without the application of large amounts of heat.

And op, it only takes the smallest amount to work... a 1-2mm wide band running around the bolt is more than enough. It doesn't need to look like it's ready to drip off either...
