I honestly didn't think it was going to go on this day either, but poof there it was, and I was surely relieved to see the rest of the screw coming out with the head. Patience paid off. I could absolutely tell it was going to end badly otherwise.

For reference, this is an 01 tank with 100,000km on it. I am sure any little bit of rain or wash water that makes it in behind the badge rubber finds its way into the mounting holes, and then you find yourself here.

What's a preferable remedy for re-install? Blue loctite, silver or copper anti seize?
dont know if BILLYSIM will hear you as going by his profile hasn't been active for ages

your reinstall is interesting, a thread locker or a thread anti seizing compound. what do want to achieve? have screws permanently in place or the ability to remove the screws again sometime in the future?
