Bearing Retainer Torque (rear wheel)

Postby fatslob » Thu May 12, 2011 7:21 am



Hello, I'm still working on my 77 naked Goldwing, parts at chromer, rims having tires mounted. I do have a question, I replaced the rear bearings, and wanted to know what the torque is for the retainer before I stake it. Hopefully I'll have a completion photo soon. Hope everyone is enjoying the riding season, I'm really jealous!

Thanks, Bob Papin (Fatslob)

I have never seen a spec for the torque on the retainer. Even my Honda manual just says to "tighten and peen. If I remember correctly all you have to do is snug it up to keep the bearing from moving outward.

Thanks for the info. I'll snug and stake it.


Thanks again, Bob Papin
