Question 05 zx6r rear wheel torque lug with cotter pin help. - October 3, 2011, 08:33 AM

I'm new to bikes and just had my wheel patched. The tech took my wheel off to fix and I notice when I got home under my passenger seat was a cotter pin laying in the pan. I remembered when we were looking for hole to patch he had taken it off the rear wheel. I rode the bike home with out issue how ever after finding that pin. I tried to put it back, and noticed the bolt/lug was real loose so I hand tighten and reinstall the pin. need to know what the torque specs are for that lug. a little worried. Please help

Wheel alignment might also be an issue if it was finger tight

Truth......Easy enough to check...just look at the hash marks on either side of the swingarm where the bolt is and see if they match on both sides. Either way, definitely need to torque that bad boy down

That's unacceptable service. Absolutely unacceptable and negligent. People's asses get kicked for stuff like that, and that's getting off easy.

Man, I can't believe some moron who calls himself a motorcycle mechanic neglected to tighten your rear wheel. Unbelievable. Guy should be fired at the least.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Tconner, while you can't always watch what the mechanic you should develop a pre flight check, make a habit to go over critical areas (chain, gas, lights, horn, brakes) and what was worked on before throwing your leg over the bike.

you are lucky to have made it home safe

Truth! Can't always trust mechanic. Bought a bike from one, rode for about 3000 miles brought in for a chain and sprocket change and tires...new mechanic tells me I'm a lucky SOB cause the front sprocket had no nut on it and was moving in and out freely

This. I would go back to the shop and complain to high heaven.

That tech should be fired, at a minimum. I'd recommend an ass beating

What shitty, piss poor shop did this to you? Name?

That's just a guide. Use the string method. Little details make huge differences.
