Install frame sliders Yamaha FZ6 S2

Installing frame sliders seems just a bit more tricky than assembling something from IKEA.
the bolts are steel, the frame is aluminium, you don't want to tighten it too hard. You might want to apply some locking agent so the engine doesn't fall off because the vibration loosened the bolts. I'm planning on taking some screenshots of the bike and manual, write down some figures for torque tightening, locking agent, and so on.

First of all, go get a torque wrench, and Loctite locking agent Loctite 242 Blue which specifically should resist vibration or Loctite 222 blue ( Loctite® 222 Low strength threadlocker for fasteners up to M36. Allows disassembly with normal tools. Approvals; P1 NSF Reg. No.: 123002 Thread size: up to M 36 Strength: low; Functional strength (average at 22°C): 6 hours breakloose torque determined in accordance with DIN 54454: 6 Nm)
