V7III head bolt torque and valve clearances
« on: August 07, 2017, 09:10:11 AM »
Out riding yesterday on my 6 day old Stone and found that the right cylinder was weeping oil from the base gasket.
I figured that the head could do with a re-torque and rather than take it back to the dealer figured I should be able to do it.
SO, I need  torque and valve clearance figures (apart from a new spark-plug wrench).
Can anybody help?
TIA

If your dealer is not a complete mess, take it back, and have them fix it.

My dealer is good, it's just that it would take me a couple of hours to do it myself versus a day to get the dealer to do it (if they can fit it in).

Make sure that's where it's coming from, haven't seen any leaks or heads needing torqued on new stuff. They are supposed to have metal head gaskets.  I would not mess w/bike that new, take it in. I will bet the leak is from some other place .

Unless I'm mistaken the V9's and V7-III's all use steel laminate gaskets that do not require re-torquing. If the weep is from a head gasket the gasket will have to be replaced. Are you certain that the head gasket is the source or is the oil tracking around from elsewhere?

Valve clearances 4 & 6 thou.

The oil is along the outside and rear of the base joint on the right cylinder.  Careful inspection shows that it's not coming from anywhere else.
I'll re-torque the heads and clean up the cases, then, if it re-appears, I'll take it into the dealers.
