Do you recommend locktite on the anti-vibration/megaphone bolt? It does vibrate quit a bit back there. Should my bolt just pop out the back of the bracket for more thread support?

Locktite on ANY motorcycle bolt threads can't hurt. =)

Bud...

Locktight comes in two colors: Red and Blue. Use the blue type if you ever anticipate needing to take the part off in the future. Also, high tempitures (as commonly encountered in an exhaust application) will loosen even the red type. Personally, I hate Locktight and use it sparingly...I do all my own service and have the long standing habit of checking bolts etc. for proper tightness. Just my opinion. Hope this helps.
