Hellow all,

Does anyone happen to know the torque, for the 8 bolts, securing the front shocks, to the tripple clamp?

Also was there ever a post that had all of the torques listed for the bike?

Thank's for the help !! :applause:

A post? No, we bought the service manual and have it at our finger tips. And or work on them often enough to know the specs :bonk:

Now what was it you asked?

Upper FORK clamp fasteners are 21.5 ftlb

Lower FORK clamp fasteners are 23.0 ftlb

what model bike? for anything but the SM it's 21.5 ft/lbs for the upper bolts and 23 ft/lbs for the lowers. cheers :applause:

Thanks guys ,

I know ,I know, quit being so cheap and buy a manual. I'm working on it !

I was just tinkering around tonight, trying to see how far I could raise the fork's, to lower the bike a little . Ran into a problem with the ign. switch hitting the top of the fork. Need to make a new switch bracket ? any ideas?

Thanks !!

Most move it to another location. I put mine on the right upper clamp bolt, and bet the bracket over a bit.
