KLR650 fork clamps

Recommended Posts

Ok, I'm new here so I thought I would try this once more with a more specific subject heading. Anyone know the torque specs for the triples on a klr? I've looked at the previous posts and found nothing so far. On the web I've seen 21.5 ft, lbs for the top, and 23 for the middle. Can anyone give me thumbs up on these specs? :thumbsup: Thanks.

That sounds about right. I used to just set the torque wrench to 20ft/lb and do them all the same. You need to keep going back and forth between the pairs, one will loosen a bit as you tighten the other. Keep going until the wrench clicks on both nuts without them moving.

The thing you DON'T want to do overtorque in an effort to prevent the front end from twisting up every time you crash. If you do this, instead of just twisting, something will bend or break (I know this for a fact, unfortunately).
