    Gen3 rear spindle torque anyone?

    Bike back from the dealers with a chain like a bow string, again! It clearly says 45-50mm free play between the sprockets, it was more like 15mm. Now correctly adjusted, but does anyone know the spindle torque up setting? Was it 85 lb/ft or did I make that up?
    Thanks in advance!

    What's changing it often got to do with correct torque?

    100 is pretty serious force, can easily crack the nut or thread if you change wheels too often

    60 is more than enough

    Swapped my nut for a shiny Titanium Nut from Pro-Bolt - Not going to get into an argument with BBB about 100Nm or not, it's his own decision.

    Incidentally my Triumph Daytona 955i with a Single Sided Swing Arm wheel nut factory setting is 140Nm.... needs a tiny, tiny smidgen of Cu grease otherwise you have to use a rattle gun with the rear brake hard on to remove it after a few miles.

    You're barking up the wrong tree....... Irrelevant how many times you change your wheels, correct torque is correct torque, end of.... If you're that worried then change your spindle/nut.
