What are the torque specs for a 2001 buell blast. This is for rocker covers?

The rocker gaskets were leaking. I took the two rocker covers off. And now I need to put them back on. But I need the torque poundage for the bolts.

SOURCE: I have a slight leak

If you're talking about the gaskets on the upper and middle plate, no problem. The bolts are supposed to torque to 100 inch pounds but I've found that an "educated wrist" can tighten them well enough so that they won't leak.

If you are talking about the rocker arm plate where it bolts to the head, this is a different matter. You'll have to replace them one at the time. Bring the piston to top dead center on the compression stroke and remove the center plate replace the gaskets, Then when you put it back, the pushrods are color coded as to where they go and the two sizes of bolts have specific torques. So, let me know if this is what you're doing and be more specific.

Good Luck
Steve

Found gas inside my 2001 buell blast primary cover....how can gas get in there?


Hi Wil, lets say you have a faulty petcock where all the rubber components are trashed, gas leaks from the petcock through the vacuum line to the intake manifold, then through an open intake valve, pass the piston rings and into the bottom end, which fills up and flows through the sprocket shaft or breather into the primary case. Good luck and have a nice day

The Buell has a Harley Engine and once the covers are removed the engine is quite straight forward. I suspect the rocker gasket is leaking. Once the engine covers have been removed, repair will be obvious.

Your first stop should be to AmericanSportbike.com, they sell the service manual, and possibly the gaskets too (Might need to call). Changing the gasket isn't hard, it will just be time consuming with all the disassembly, and the service manual will make sure you do it correctly. Good luck!
