Is there a torque spec for the rear axle? what about the torque link?

Thanks, Larry
This chart is from the 450 Manaul, but the values listed generally apply to all bolts of that particular size.....

Oops! -on a 350G model ( non diesel :) )

Thanks Bill2 -I was able to find it in the manual (thanks for the manual also!) after looking at your chart. Are those four Front Fork Axle nuts that tight -550 to 650 kg. cm. (about 43 foot lbs) The nuts seems smal to take that torque.

Diesel ???!!!

I think the 43 foot pound figure you mention is for the actual axle nut.

The 4 studs that hold on the axle "clamps" (bottom of fork tubes) are just 8mm, and would tighten to the standard 8mm value of 13-20 pounds.

I wish my 350 manual that I have downloaded gave torque specs like that above, my table gives kg-cm, I don't even know if I can buy a torque wrench in kg-cm. I have a metric-imperial conversion website on favorites I go to, just an extra step though.

Both my torque wrenches have in/lbs, ft/lbs on one side and newton-meters on the other.
