One of distinctive difference in Honda CBR750 manual is, no description about particular threadlocker brand.

In Aprilia, Hurley Davidsson and other MC vendors, assigned Loctite xxx as threadlocker.

Today, I dismantled rear disc rotor. I found its bolts are coated by green threadlocker. Loctite also has green threadlocker but it is very special one.
So, it looks like Honda used Threebond 1401b threadlocker for assembiling RC27 rear disc rotor.

Loctite is quite expensive and Threebond has very reasonable price.

To be honest I never use Loctite or similar on brakedisc bolts, I just put them on 40Nm as per the manual, with a good torque wrench.
That is, together with crankshaft and bigend bolts, also the only time I use a torque wrench "in anger", and the only time I lost a bolt (just a month ago) was the 4mm screw holding the left side of my windscreen. Which I hadn't touched for probably 6 years or so.....
