shock bolt torques?

Recommended Posts

New 105 and changing the shock spring, but the manual does not list the torques for the shock bolts?

Anyone know these?

thanks

I don't have a book here at work but I do think it's listed in the back of the book. Look for a page that says something about chassis.

All the torque specs are listed.

I just downloaded the owners manual from ktm and they list mist torque specs but not the shock bolts. I would assume tight lol jk.

Personally, on my old '98 300, I use really light torque on those bolts, and rely on safety wire, on both top & bottom bolts, to keep the bolts in place.

I don't know about your newer 105, but my '98's bolts have dished heads, and are actually fairly soft, which makes drilling them with a 1/16th drill easy.

I drilled a small hole in my frame up by the upper shock mount for the the safety wire to anchor to up top, and I run the wire to the plastic guide/clamp/thingie that routes the rear brake line on the bottom. Hope this helps!

spelling-I drilled a "hole", not a "hoe", hee hee.....
