Axle nut 145 Nm
rear sprocket nuts B and C models 74 Nm
rear sprocket but E and F models 59Nm
front sprocket nut 125 Nm
front caliper mounting bolts 34Nm
Hope this helps - if your wrench isn't in Nm you can get a conversion online.
Hi Lawrence, here are your axle torque specifications for all late models 2000 and up where applicable.
1. Front axle nut 50-55 ft lbs.
2. Front fork slider cap nuts 11-15 ft lbs.
3. Front fork pinch bolt 30-35 ft lbs.
4. Rear axle nut 60-65 ft lbs.
Good luck and have nice day.
you can change the sprockets.If you go to a 16 tooth front sprocket. two teeth on a front sprocket is like droping 4 teeth on the rear. You could drop 2 teeth on the rear sprocket but a 43 tooth is probably harder to find. the usual choices for front are 14,15,16 tooth.
For the rear they are 44,45,46 tooth
The way to remeber gearing changes is on REAR sprocket is smaller=faster and larger=slower top end.
the FRONT is OPPOSITE to the rear smaller=slower and bigger=faster.
You may have to lengthen or shorten the chain depending whjch way you go.
I am assuming when you say changing from high gear to low gear you are talking about changing the chain drive gears if so yes it can be difficult because the rear wheel must be removed and also the front sprocket must be held stationary in order to unscrew the hold down nut, this is usually the hardest part of the job but not impossible. Don't forget that most people that change the sprockets to increase off the line torque usually change the sprocket in sets unless you want to shorten or lengthen the chain, sometimes this si neccessary other times the chain slack adjustment range will allow you to get away with not needing to lengthen the chain, this only applies to people who decide not to chain the sprockets as a set.
