Torque settings for all maintainance

Postby oldirish » Tue Apr 16, 2013 12:48 pm



In talking to a cycling friend (Harley rider) he said he has to use a torque wrench to tighten all nuts/bolts when maintaining his bike. If that is true for all cycles is there a list of suggested torque setting when doing maintenance, such as simple oil change, final drive fluid change, or soon to tackle rear disc brakes?

Yes....In the first few pages of the service manual there is a torque guide.
Usually sprinkled about the manual in the reassembly areas too.
The prefered method is always go by the recomended torque.

There are a few non-critical bolts and fasteners that I will just estimate, but for most (and especially those going into aluminum) I always torque everything to the correct value with a torque wrench.
