1-16 GENERAL INFORMATION

Torque and Locking Agent

Tighten all bolts and nuts to the proper torque using an accurate torque wrench. An insufficiently
tightened bolt or nut may become damaged or fall off, possibly resulting in damage to the motorcycle
and injury to the rider. A bolt or nut which is overtightened may become damaged, strip an internal
thread, or break and then fall out. The following table lists the tightening torque for the major bolts
and nuts, and the parts requiring use of a non-permanent locking agent or liquid gasket.
When checking the tightening torque of the bolts and nuts, first loosen the bolt or nut by half a turn
and then tighten it to the specified torque.
Letters used in the "Remarks" column mean:
L: Apply a non-permanent locking agent to the threads.
Lh: Left-hand threads.
LG: Apply liquid gasket to the threads.
S: Tighten the fasteners following the specified sequence.
SS: Apply silicone sealant to the threads.
