Are there pages in the service manual with ALL the torque specs?
I don't think so. If there was, it would have to have pictures, which would make it a huge section and kind of redundant since you can just flip to the page you need. If you need a specific torque, I'd be happy to look it up.

I'll have a look through my service manual this evening (it's morning here and I'm at work. Boo!) and report back if there is anything useful if nobody else has before then.

Interesting, all of my other bike's service manuals had a page(s) dedicated to torque specs in a giant list that was a few pages long, no pictures though. I don't necessarily need all the specs, it's just nice to know.

Sounds like you should buy a service manual then! They're less than $50.
Yea, I'm going to pick one up eventually. Maybe over winter, won't have the bike back until March or April so I'm waiting to see if there are any deals over the holidays.

Ok folks, I've added as much as I could find to the first post. If someone could get me more, I'll add it in. Especially looking for spark plug, rear sprocket nuts, engine mounts, and front sprocket nut torque.

Well done AJ....
Thanks, I'm sure this will be a big help to anyone who needs a quick reference and it's much easier to check this than a service manual if you need a single spec quickly.

Dunno about yours mate but mine's steel.:eek:
Mine is as well. They look cheap, but they're definitely steel. Front axle, rear axle, and swingarm pivot nuts were the first things I torqued when I got my bike home. They were all within a couple ft/lbs of the factory specs.

Hi, great post. Not trying to nit pick you here though but just thought you might want to know for your own information...

For torque, "ft/lbs" is an incorrect way to denote the English units for torque as it implies division.

Torque is a force multiplied by a distance, called the moment arm, from the axis of rotation. So you are multiplying a ft by a pound-force or vice versa, it means the same thing - coincidentally you could say meter-Newtons or lbf-ft.

Note how I denoted the lb force there as lbf. This is customary to distinguish the pound-force, which is a unit of force obviously, over a pound-mass, a unit of mass.

edit:

So if you want, the non-SI torque should be lbf-ft or ft-lbf, whichever is fine due to the communicative property of multiplication, but ft-lbf is more customary since when talking about torques people like to keep the moment arm at 1 ft to just isolate the magnitude of the force itself. I.e. a torque from a moment arm of 2 ft and a force of 8 lbf is the same as a torque with a moment arm of 1 ft and 16 lbf. Like how when breaking loose a lugnut you use a long breaker bar, the mechanical advantage of that longer tool. The longer the handle or cheater bar the larger the torque produced with the same force.

I don't think a single person would take it as you have, implying division (you must be an engineer or something along those lines). I've never seen an extended torque wrench, so I doubt anyone is connecting an extension to their torque wrench. It was simply the neatest way to make the post with hypens separating all the important information. The BBCode on this site is very limiting.

7.5 ft/lbs - 10 Nm looks better than 7.5 ft - lbs - 10 Nm or 7.5 ft-lbs - 10 Nm.


I even made sure to put a handy key in the first post in case anyone was confused:

ft/lbs = Foot Pounds - Nm = Newton Meters
