Grease, thread locker, sealants,....

I have a question on what do You "do it yourself" maintenance or even more professional wrench heads use to service Your MV Agusta F4 or Brutale in the USA.
Me being a mechanic on gas turbines and servicing / installing them all around the globe I'm used to quite a lot of greases, fluids, sealants but they are mostly pretty specific and I don't know if this is than the best for motorcycles.
further some of the stuff in the Chassis manual is hardly to find in the USA or like at Mc Master only available in never in entire life consumable amounts.
I had no chances in the last decade to do much on my F4 and had still stuff as WD40, greases and things from the time where I still lived in Germany. With the last moving from PA to TN everything got lost, including tools and everything what remotely looked like flammable. Well women take care of other things than our garage items.
So what do You guys use compared to the chassis manual stuff in the USA and where do You source it from?
Loctite 542
Loctite 243
Loctite 242 (I have this already)
Loctite 270 (have this too)
Molykote (which 1000 or P37 or do they mean something completely different, is this good as a never seize on Ti stuff and exotic material mixes as well)
Molykote BR2 Plus
AGIP Grease 30
AGIP GR SM
Silicone Grease
Aluminium Tape (for the air box, which thickness, width)
I really appreciate Your input and might some other do it yourself beginners will be glad for this informations as well.

Have you looked at the MV service manual,it recommends all the greases/thread locks in each section that you need to use.

Aluminium tape at Home Depot stores( AC department ) auto parts stores sell loctite , molykote or Permatex anti-seize lubricant , As for different AGIP lubricant you can order from APRILIA AF-1 forum online . They offer several AGIP products.

Guess where my list is from Mitchy. Yes I browsed trough the chassis service manual and collected everything in there to put it on my purchase list.

Nicolino, thanks for the input. But I hate the idea of coming home any when in February, begging my wife to drive me to places (I don't have a car yet) and to find out that they don't have the stuff I'm searching.
I'm used to learn on manufacturers home pages that certain outlets have their products but than they don't have it in their stores. Dupont dry chain lube should be available at Walmart. I drove 50 miles to the next Walmart and guess what, I ordered it over amazon.
Loctite has more than 1000 products and might 200 tread lockers, my fear is that I will find Loctite but fnding Loctite 542 is likely requiring a good portion of luck.
Same applies to Molykote, they have 1000+ products as well. And the service manual doesn't even specify which. I assume 1000 or P37. Both great anti seizes in my books.
Further I think that the greases from AGIP are nothing designed for a space mission to Mars. So what would be an USA made equivalent ?
Also I found aluminum tape on McMaster-Carr and they have different grades, glues and width of it. So what is Your recommendation ? 2 inch, 3 inch,...
