    I should get the last bolt needed to put my bike back on the road today. It is the bolt where the engine mounts to the frame via the Crash mushroom (right/brake side). Realising that this is probably quite an important bolt, I realise that I need to tighten it to the correct torque setting.

    As I dont have a torque wrench, I had a look at Halfords and they are 40 - 50 quid!!! Also, there are 3 different torque ranges.

    Do any of you know of anyone that loans torque wrenches? I feel, it's a bit daft to pay at least £40 just to tighten a bolt up!
     
  2. I have a torque wrench. I can bring it round, do you know the correct torque setting?

    Cheers

    I have one but it 's a bit far to come to use on one bolt. It's a 20 quid jobbie from Argos http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/p ... TORQUE.htm

    I use it mainly for the rear wheel as I think it's important to have the correct torque on the rear wheel due to the forces on it.

    Thanks for the swift replies.

    Godzilla - I'll take you up on the offer thanks. Not sure on the Torque setting but will find out.

    Thanks again.
     
  6. Let me know, I will see if its in the range of my wrench
     
  7. If its the front frame adjuster bolt then the torque for that is 48 Nm.

    my wrench is 5-25 Nm sorry

    The halfords one is very easy to use. I got one off ebay for 25 quid. Best purchase I have made in the tool department. Well worth having especialyy for tightening rear wheel nut.

    I can't find the torque settings anywhere. So I rang Bill Smiths in Chester to ask them. They said that their mechanics, just tighten it up "really really tight".

    Is this a fair answer?
     
  10. No thats utter bullshit imho
     
  11. The manual gives a torque setting of 48 Nm.

    It's ridiculous a dealer giving you an answer like that.I would be wary of trusting them with my bike.
     
  15. Agreed, that's one place my bike will never go :)

    I've managed to find it on the internet. The reason it wont send is that it's 47Mb.

    Thanks for your help.
