The FSM says 61-76 ft/lbs for the axle nut and 17-21 ft/lbs for the pinch bolt on the 1200.

Or 83 - 103 Nm for the axle and 23 -28 Nm for pinchbolt

We can ride here all year round, but it does get nippy mid-winter.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

LOL... I was going to suggest keeping an eye on the dog. I had a labrador retriever steal two wheel lug nugs while I was working on my truck about 30 years ago. I saw her run off with the second one... never found either. Looking back on it, maybe I was caught in a time warp anti-gravity continuum or some strange thing like what happened in those pictures. Maybe I should have looked for them on the celing of the shop??

I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.
