Re: 2018 Yamaha R6 Crankcase Cover torque specification
oh ok. that's just a protector bolted on with the stator cover bolts. so yeah just snug is good. loosen one of the others in the cover and you can get an idea what it feels like to a good tightness. it's not critical. unless you want to go out and buy a torque wrench that will go down that far. I worked as a mechanic for a while at a yamaha dealer and I never ever put a torque wrench on an engine cover. it's just not that critical. internal engine bolts yes. covers, no.
the new R1 uses aluminum bolts in those covers that the service manual says to replace and not reuse. that's another pile of stupid. there's no reason to replace a bolt that gets so little torque. my point is there are a lot of things in the service manual that are unnecessary.
