Head Bolts

Recommended Posts

I installed an athena kit in 08 crf 250 and was tightening the head bolts and was only able to torqe 3 of them the forth one felt like it was going to snap it feels tight with a wratchet but not to spec it started first kick and ran perfect should I take it back apart and try to torqe it and hope it dosent break or just leave it alone until I do the top end again

Mine was the same, I backed the torque off a couple of pounds and it held. So far so good.

Be raced once and rode several times since.

I put it through a good heat cycle and no leaks I think 29 foot lbs is way to much but that is what the manual says.
