torque settings 1200 sport
« on: April 28, 2015, 02:09:59 PM »
Hey all,
For a 1200 sport, what are the torque settings for the triple tree pinch bolts (m8x30 upper, m8x25 lower) and the axle pinch bolts (m6x40)? 
The Service Station Manual specifies 10 Nm for "Fork hubs closing", which I am interpreting to mean axle pinch bolts.  Pretty sure about that one, but can someone confirm, please?
The manual specifies 6 Nm for "Tube lock plate to steering base retainer", and 25 Nm for "Fork stem to lower / upper plate retainer"; which of these is the triple tree pinch bolt?  6 Nm doesn't seem tight enough, and 25 Nm seems maybe too tight.
Last thing I want to do is over-torque one of these bolts and break a casting.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, GuzziSteve.  But what about 6 or 25 Nm for the triple tree pinch bolts?
