I am of the old school of thinking that Loctite will not really make that much of a difference if you have a good RDM/TM's. I have ridden in Karma's that have the spline chatter at low speeds/reverse with 25k miles. In the long run I don't think it will matter much. I think it sounds a lot worse than it is. The tolerance is close enough where it won't make that much of a difference. The soft splines were a whole different issue and with/without Loctite the splines would have eventually spun out due to the manufacturing defect.
If you are going to pull the RDM (especially on early Karma's) just to do the Loctite you might as well replace the whole RDM with a late model unit- rather than just use loctite on your old TM's/RDM. Of course you are better off waiting till it fails as RDM's and TM's are not cheap.
