Special Tool - Top Plug Wrench, 49 mm: 57001-1653 [B]
The torque of fork top plug is specified to 30 N·m (3.1
kgf·m, 22 ft·lb), however, when you use the top plug
wrench (special tool) [A] reduce the torque to 90% of the
specified value [27 N·m (2.8 kgf·m, 20 ft·lb)] due to the
distance [B] between the center of the square hole, where
the torque wrench is fitted, and that of the octagonal hole
of the wrench.
This torque value [27 N·m (2.8 kgf·m, 20 ft·lb)] is appli-
cable when you use a torque wrench whose length gives
leverage of approximately 310 mm between the grip point
to the center of the coupling square.
