    Bolt Torque Info Thread

    so after getting a note from a member that told me he is going to have to replace all his clutch bolts even

    though he torqued them to the manual )i dont know which one) spec of 46-48 FOOT lbs

    i have talked to jc and him and i and"we" are going to take the time to make a combined fastener torque chart that is easy to find here on the forum

    can be searched by section and is accurate plus i am sure jc will put some cool magic into its interface for us

    i am hoping we can do a point and click picture thing to find the bolt torque we want

    so we need to gather info and could use verified accurate help fro 500s and 650s

    here is my break down suggestion

    NOTE all values must be from the honda service manual

    any help would be appreciated but when adding a torque make sure you include the item and the bike type

    FRONT END FRONT WHEELS

    ENGINE

    FRAME

    SWING ARM

    RUNNING GEAR REAR WHEELS

    ACCESSORY ITEMS

    MISSING VALUES

    also there are some fastener that people say dont have a torque in the manual please post that here

    and we will find and include them

    if you see one we are missing please help out find it and post it

    if anybody has a better way please go for it and give us a suggestion

    i am going to work with jc at scanning in all the tables we can find and verify to start the party

    ANY IDEAS

    Isn't the torque for the special nut 58 - 72 ft/lb? Just wondering where the 46 - 48 ft/lb figure even came from.

    The lifter plate bolts are 6 - 9 Murray? I'm surprised he didn't rip the posts out of the clutch.

    now the first thing we have to do with this i guess id put a place for discussions and a place to post to?

    so we dont wind up with a useless article 29 pages back due to talking

    Some torque values from our driver's manual. A good fellow in the german CX forum made this.
    But the list is not complete.

    This will add huge value to a forum brimming with abundant information.

    My pebble in the pond will be to either standarize the names of all the parts to be torqued as per Honda FSM ( or better still give all the regional synonyms of the names in brackets , so all can understand which bolt or screw is which ) AND to standarize the unit values of torque to the metric Newton meters, Nm. ( with all other values in brackets )

    Hex ( Allen ) bolt, bottom slider, Fork tube = 15 to 25 Nm

    My experience is that a lot of mistakes come from people who don't have an engineering background and assume torque applied pressure is revelant to bolt head size when in fact torque applied is related to shank thickness, thread pitch and material strength that is why the factory settings are important and take all of that into account.

    With some called out with the exploded view at the beginning of each chapter ... and in the text.

    But this idea still has merit.
