GSXR600 Torque Specs - September 11, 2008, 09:06 PM

Hey guys,

I'm swapping tires on Tatyfool's '07 600, does anyone know the front and rear axle nut torque specs offhand?

Thanks...

we go "good and tight" on the rear, using one arm. Remember that Zuki's tighten up the chain in the rear when you tighten the axle, leave some slack in the chain by stepping on it or putting a screwdriver in between the chain and the rear sprocket. The front is no more than like 22 lbs, because the pinch bolts do a lot of the work. Pinch bolts are like 14 each. So you know, I'm not quoting from the book.


"ride on #47, ride on"

on the internet you can be anyone you want, it's strange that so many people choose to be so stupid

...and nobody better post up any stuff about how gay that first sentance sounds either.

Thanks Chris,

Oh...his bike is getting your take-offs.

Kevin has some money for you them, and I owe you for another set that I grabbed last week.

When are you going to pull the tires off bikes??? I want the slicks from the "A" bike...

pinch bolts are 16.5 lb-ft
front axle is 72.5 lb-ft
brake calipers are 28 lb-ft
rear axle nut 72.5 lb-ft
a new cotter pin is recommended unless you are using an r-clip or safety pin.

hollyWOOD made a gay joke on himself... i prefer to use "good and tight in reference to much nicer things. btw good and tight is only good if you know what 72 lb-ft feels like. otherwise you end up either too tight or too loose, bad either way. we change wheels enough to know the feeling. use a torque wrench and know it's correct.


MissS:no now!!!

bambam nope you said i have a few hours

MissS: I changed my mind

bambam: see MissS: well, you have a few hours

MissS: I'm a female, allowed to do it

Thanks bambam,

I can't believe the front axle is 72, that seems high!

It's not my bike so I wanted to make sure it's right on.

Man, you'd better stick to the riding!!! Good thing you have a wrench that knows what he's doing!

if its not your bike then why worry about how tight they are, just hand tighten and forget it.

Oh wait a minute....

My anal retentiveness will just not let me go "good and tight." Sweet Jesus, that just sounds gay...

In other words, it's gettin' a torque wrench!
