You may reconsider using green lock-tite. It's not just the nipples turning that makes a spoke loose. The head of the spoke seats into the rim and the nipple is seating into the hub. If you do use GREEN lock-tite, the next time the wheel needs truing or a spoke is loose, you'll likely be buying a full set of spokes (Yamaha doesn't usually sell singles). Applying heat might allow you to turn the nipple if it has GREEN on it though. If you're set on using Lock-tite, maybe the blue would be a better choice. We've been a Yamaha dealer since 1977. Over that time, they have had years where they were all perfect and years were they were all loose. On YZ's in the early 90's they were often too loose when they came out of the crate. Recently we haven't sold very many YZ's but the ones I've checked have been fine. Actually it's the dealer's responsibility to check the spokes before predelivery to the customer. It's easy to get complacent when you check them on 50 Vstars in a row and don't find a loose spoke. We have an S10 on the floor and haven't checked it. I'll do that an post back if I remember to.
