A few years ago, I was riding with a friend, me on my R1150R and he on his
Sprint-RS. His clutch linkage fell apart and pieces "clinked" off onto the
roadway, but I'm the "be prepared" type and had a set of tools and hardware
squirreled away over the airbox, enabling us to put his Triumph back
together. He got out a tube of anti-seize as part of the job. Since then,
I bought a tube (copper-colored stuff) and slipped it into a corner in the
bike, but that's where it ends - I've never used it.
Questions: Where is anti-seize compound typically needed? Is it silly to
carry it for road repairs (it tends to leak out of the container)? If BMW
specifies a torque value for a bolt, is that a sign NOT to use the stuff? I
think of tough-to-remove lug bolts.
