Mine were finger tight when I went to remove them to pull the rear wheel @15,000mi (2008 883L )
I'd noticed an intermittent whoop,whoop sound but being my 1st Harley and the Sure Shot pipes, I wasn't sure if this was normal. Guess I found the source!

I lost one nut on my rear pipe after I replaced the entire exhaust system. So, I replaced the nut and kept an eye on it for some miles, no more issues since then. Don't know if thread lock is advised.

Key is to retighten after a few heat cycles as the gaskets seats. Only thread locker that would come close is red loctite and it's probably not going to work either. Even if it did work, breaking off a stud in the head is no way to live life.
I checked mine after the latest round of removing the pipes and 600 miles. Still tight. Never hurts to check every so often.

I have not had a problem with the nuts since the last installation. While tightening the nuts I tightened them until they were very snug. Then with a very small hammer I gently tapped the flange the nuts screw down on to. Each time I tapped the nuts would turn another one to one and a half turns. This procedure was repeated about four times until the nuts were tight. As a precaution, after a few short rides, I added jam nuts.
