Lies, All Lies

If and when anyone has the courage to clean the oil screen, do not believe the manuals torque numbers! 87 inch pounds is bulls@#t. Its more like 30 inch pounds, and the threads still stripped a bit. i have just cleaned the screen for the 3rd time and i wont be doing it again as there was very minimal "worms" on it. What a nightmare! i spent a lot of time easing this thing back together today. Be careful and read all the articles in here about this screen.

People need to learn to use locktite and tighten small bolts by hand.

Never pulled the threads on any of my bikes.
