I just passed the 600 mile mark today. Looking at the owner's manual, says to "tighten" exhaust pipe, muffler, chassis bolts and nuts; but doesn't say what tighten means. I did a forum search, and found folks listing K5 specs from a while back. I ordered my FSM a few days ago, but probably won't get in till monday.

Does anyone know, or would be willing to look up in their FSM, the torque specs for these?

Thanks,

I'll be happy to share the torque specs when I get home from work in an hour or so.

Actually, I'll probably make a post about it this weekend as well since I've been meaning to check the torques (I'm at 850 mi now).

Much appreciated, I'm doing the oil at the moment, not too concerned about the torques for now, but I got a canyon ride planned Sunday with a buddy on a Ducati Monster, gotta show him what's up ;)

Thank you very much :) I'll get on that tomorrow.

The oil change was way more of a PITA than it should have been.

Oil filter does not need to be on that tight



And I may just tell the dealer that when I show up tomorrow to play everybody's favorite game of "why did this bolt I've never touched fall out of my fairing?"

Did you break the filter wrench?? Wow... I had trouble as well, but after taking off the coolant res I had a better angle and it came right off.

Jeffro Yup, wrench broke, wound up having to go get a set of toothed filter pliers from Harbor Freight. Practically peeled the filter off, but once it was finally loose it backed off easily. No apparent thread damage or contaminates left over.



Stromer I ordered the manual from the dealer already, wish I'd have known about that site, but it's paid for and they don't do returns on printed material. They said it comes direct from the publisher, so just waiting on it to arrive.
