Re: Factory torque specs too tight?

Yea figured it was a rare occasion, and the only times it probably has happened is from people forgetting to tighten it all together.

Just food for further debate.

One more time dipshit, its not to keep the nut on. Its too keep the wheel in place. If the swingarm had a round hole that fits the axle so its fixed then the torque would probabaly be 50. but the wheel is held in place by clamping force. 45 isnt enough. In fact name any bike by suzuki, yamaha, kawasaki and ill post a screenshot of the axle torque spec for the rear and the front. Ill bet you no bike ever made has an axle (front too) set below 50.

I dont care what your idiot buddies at the daytona 200 do to their pile od shit bike. Most guys that race are semi dipshits that ive met.

just want to quote this for posterity. If & when you meet racers (not at a fan walk)... Be sure to let them know your broad brush comment and which side they qualify for (dip shit or non dip shit)
Yes and dont forget... the top 20 is paying $$$ to competitors that finish a silly 57 lap race. Whats so hard about finishing a 57 lap race? Please show up and qualify inside the top 20 with your awesome riding or wrenching skill set. I will give up my day job and become your indentured servant if that happens!

HINT: B group trackday riders cant qualify!

Shit Id give you $10,000 in cash & prizes... if you can do 1 lap under 2 minutes there. You will have to use a transponder not some lame lap app.

; has well over 20 bikes across the country; he had ridden tracks all over the country; has raced for many years; and has been a mechanic for at least one professional racer that I know of.

That being said, I am scared and tighten all my stuff the factory specs.

Re: Factory torque specs too tight?

So me tightening to 100 ft*lbs is bad? lmao. Sorry but i rather feel safe than sorry.

You both had very compelling arguments though.

He equates someone that is a good rider to someone that is intelligent or highly mechanically inclined. Someone riding abilities doesnt mean jack squat. I know a guy that can ride at the same pace(aka raced with) a few of the current ss guys in motoamerica. and he thinks automatic trans fluid is the same as fork oil and puts it in people forks that come ti his shop for service in their bikes.

Re: Factory torque specs too tight?

Well this has gotten a bit off the rails XD wasn't trying to start an argument.

Just wanted some other opinions since I have two conflicting pieces of advice. One being a mechanic of 20+ years who specializes in Japanese sport bikes, and the other being the manufacturer manual, two sources which when taken individually I would consider fairly unimpeachable.

Haha, welcome to the forums. When those 2 get involved it gets pretty entertaining.
