Engine Stud Torque

Postby GixxerSixxer » Tue Jun 28, 2011 9:14 am

Question for you guys that've removed your main engine stud for the purpose of slider installation, etc...

I did my Shogun sliders last night, but I didn't have a service manual available for my 2011. I used the main engine mounting stud torque spec for the 2009 model which was 39.8 ft/lbs. Does that sound right? Moto 911 said they are usually in the 30-35 range, so I figured it was probably fine.

I know they made changes to the engine in 2011, but it's probably not drastically different from 2008-2010, so going with what the 2009 manual says should be a pretty safe bet in the absence of a 2011 manual.

39.8 sounds like it's in the right general vicinity, anyway. My FZ is 40 on all of them, and my R1 is 33 or 36, depending on the bolt.
With enough profanity, you can accomplish anything.
