Or you can buy a new one if you have money to throw away.
Loctite 263 is the wrong product for this application and should only be used to secure fasteners.

Loctite is a brand name and what they sell are mostly glues/adhesives.

If you really want to glue the pins back in the flywheel Loctite 640 should be used. Loctite 640 is specifically engineered to secure press fit assemblies.

LoctiteŽ Sleeve Retainer 640™ is a high temperature anaerobic adhesive that secures slip and press fit assemblies. Adds up to 3,000 psi holding power. Restores fit to worn or out-of-tolerance assemblies. Prevents surface corrosion. Works to 400°F. Mil Spec: Mil-S-46082B Type II. ASTM-D5363: Group 4 Class 1 Grade 2.

This is also the product I always use to secure the bearings in the 2-speed housing.

But like others said, your flywheel is too important to rely on Loctite.
In order to achieve the strength listed in the specs you will need a perfect bond, this can only be achieved after proper training on how to work with Loctite products.
If the pins come out again it can ruin your race and it will also ruin your clutch bell.
Plus a bottle of Loctite costs around the same as a new flywheel.
