Ran into a little problem installing factory pro shift kit.

Well its my first time tearing down the transmission on this bike and everything was going smooth until I went to reinstall the detent arm. I was torquing down the arm and it felt like it was getting snug but never felt like it bottomed out. I end up breaking the bolt so I have a fun filled time removing the broken piece and rethreading.

Are any of these bolts supposed to be replaced after they are removed? the star seemed to get snugged down tight. Anyone use locktite (blue)? should I replace the main bolt for the clutch basket?

Thanks for any helpful feedback.

do you mean the nut for the clutch basket?` Yes. I'd replace it.
There are several that need to be replaced in the engine after splitting it. I'm assuming that you're following a manual for torque values so it would say which ones are only to be used once.
