TTR 230 Spoke Torque

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I replaced all the spokes with OEM's on the rear wheel of my son's

2006 TTR 230, as I followed the tightening and torquing patterns that I read,

being from loose, 1/4 turn on 1, skip 2spokes, 1/4 on the next until up to

the spec of 3.25 NM as in the service manual, the rim has a slight wobble

when complete.  When it was just snug, I adjusted for trueness, had it very

nice, then proceeded up to torque by 1/4 turn and following pattern as above.

 

Now that it is torqued, how do I remove the wobble and still be torqued properly?

 

Thanks...

Torquing is only applicable on new spokes. And even then as you note, once snugged THEN you have to go and adjust everything however needed to achieve true-ness.

That is the only criteria. Torque doesn't matter then.

Ok, so now that I've torqued them, is it ok to loosen/tighten slightly

as needed to true it up?

 

Also, many posts that I read indicated a torque of 45-48 in lbs, my service

manual says 28 in lbs, prior to having the manual, I tried to reach 45, and had 

one break at 35, so I now have them at 28 as per the manual, will this be good?

Thanks, I figured the manual to be right, and the runout is really not that bad, well within spec, just nice to know the proper procedure.

Thanks again,
