help, drain plug torques?

Recommended Posts

i just got an 05' dr-z 400sm. i'm coming up on my first oil change and the owners manual does'nt state the appropriate torque for the sump drain plug or the frame drain plug. can anyone with an 05' sm help a fellow drz rider. btw, i love the bike! :banghead:

Joker, in what part of LA do you live? Were you the one that bought that SM from D&L powersports?

I'm also looking for the same info regarding the drain plugs.

Found this on a quick search. Pictures in the second reply should have what you need. I think the specs are tha same for all models but ymmv.

I never use a torque wrench for drain plugs. I just tighten it till it feels right. If I had to guess, it's probably something like 18-20 lbs ft
