I was out riding my 1981 yz 250 when I stopped and went to start it again no kick lever it had fallen off, luckily I found it after searching for an hour, but I did not find the nut. My question is which loc-tite should I use on the nut to keep it in place?

Blue will probably be your best bet, it will stay and wont be hard to get off if you need to.

If the bolt is strong enough(Grade 8 or better) then Red is good too. But I would put it on a weak bolt, I've broken too many bolts trying to extract them with red loc-tite on them.

The trick to removing fasteners that have had red loctite applied is heat. If I recall correctly, 450*F is the breakdown temp of red. Still a bit of a problem with a shaft going thru a seal though.
