Campagnolo says "If caliper needs to be removed, the screws must always be replaced, as the threadlocker will no longer be effective".

I see reference to this part in Campagnolo spare parts catalogs, but can't find it anywhere on sale:

Magura front caliper mounting bolts look similar. I suspect Campy's bolts are made by them. Is it possible to use Magura's bolts instead?

Another route is to apply dry threadlocker to used Campy's bolts. Is it a viable option and if yes, what threadlocker brand and type to use?

That comes across to me as a note aimed at lawyers.

If you feel able to do a bolt up correctly and that you would be able to notice if it were loose, then perhaps you wouldn't worry about this particular warning.

put new thread lock on the bolts. The bolts dont really need thread lock. I dont thread lock mine and they never come loose if done up tight enough. Thats the point of thread lock in case the mechanic does not tighten the bolt properly. offically thats not the reason in reality it is.
