Before I get bashed, disclaimer: im a newbie who just bought an R6 and tracked my bike. I replaced the tires and looking for settings for:

Front calipers and everything front wheel
Rear Axle:

I looked online and could'nt really find an accurate source.

do you know how to properly install a front axle? (most important step)

I use maybe 1/2 what the factory manual says.

On the rear axle I set mine at ~34 ft lbs. Front maybe ~30.
Front axle allens ~18
Front calipers ~25

All my stuff gets wired too, so keep that in mind.
Alot of guys like to flip the rear axle so the nut is on the sprocket side.

Thanks for responding.

Yes everything has been installed and tightened. I just did not have a torque wrench and since I'm tracking this weekend I just wanted to make sure I had the right settings.

AGAIN, THANK YOU!

Do NOT use the torque listed in the manual for the rear sprocket nuts!! 74 lb-ft?!! For a 10mm stud? Should be closer to 25 lb-ft.

This is wrong in all the R6 manuals. And there have been more than a few threads where someone is asking why his sprocket bolts broke when he applied the "correct" torque according to the manual.

agree that the manual torque for rear axle is overkill, ya still need a MANUAL .. especially if you plan to do more track days.
