Title: Want to confirm terminology in service manual regarding fluid change.
Post by: Toecutter on June 10, 2015, 11:34:07 AM
I have the service manual, I ride a shiny new 2014 V7 Special.

In it, it states that the transmission takes 85W-140, and the gearbox takes 85W-90.

Are they referring to the final drive when they say "Transmission"?

Also... I haven't removed the valve covers yet, but will be tomorrow evening to adjust them as per 1000 km service specs. Will I be removing the rocker arms to torque the heads? What size hex drivers do I need for the job? I'd hate to get in there and realize I need to make a run to the hardware store.

edit: Also, I can find a torque value for the oil filter cover, and oil drain plugs, but nothing for the filler plugs?

Thank you!

 Yes , transmission = final drive . MG really needs to straighten that out , it has caused problems . Don't know if the SBs have a hidden stud like BBs that requires the rocker arms to be removed .

'transmission' is the Bevelbox on the rear of the swingarm. 'gearbox' is the thing behind the engine.

No need to remove the rocker arms to re-torque the heads on a smallblock. What you'll need is a 17mm socket, a 10mm alien key socket, either a long one or a 3/8ths drive one and an extension and a 12mm deep socket, also preferably 3/8ths drive.

The rocker support studs have 17mm nuts, the outer two sleeve nuts are 10mm allens and the top/inner stud has a 12mm nut. 17 &10mm allens are 30-32 ft/lbs. 12mm nut is 20-22 ft/lbs.

Filler plugs are torqued to common sense.

Or for those of us with less common sense than Pete, about 12 Nm is good.
