Question RED Locktite ?

SO, LOL
Fun with pictures. Any way I got my engine removed and can't remove the camshafts sprocket bolts, seems like they might have been RED lock tited . Figure I will have to break out the torch and bring the bolts to 550 *F , unless so9me one here knows of an alternate method. I tried a head gun for about 5 minutes and no go, the sprockets will skip on the chain.
Engine looks kind of clean, any ideas are welcome.

Thumbs up So yea it was RED lock tite but

there was just so little and some how there was oil in there with it. This brings me to think that the engine overheated .
Out the bolts came and I moved in and removed the camshafts and CCT .
End of story.

I found those were a real beast to remove the first time too. I had to resort to an impact

If the engine's dealt with a lot of heat, you may see extra wear elsewhere, but I wouldn't jump to conclusions just yet. How do the cam journals look?

Post Odd but there is no other overheating signs


Camshaft journals and tappets/followers are peach.
I am starting to believe that the bike only have 16K on the clock as it was originally advertised.
The compression rings are aligned on at least a couple of the pistons I checked.
I think the original damage to the bike was done out of biker/rider ignorant racing habits/abuse.
