Re: Rear Axle Torque

Isn't 45ft/lbs for the front tire?

Re: Rear Axle Torque

The correct rear axle torque for first generation bikes is 47 ft-lbs, 65 N-m. That's both the owner's manual and the shop manual. I doubt that the identical typo would appear consistently in both publications.

Re: Rear Axle Torque

72.5 is correct for second gen.
axle is bigger than 1st gen,which is 47.
torque is dependent on size and grade of bolt.
you can find whole page of torque settings in back of service manual.

Re: Rear Axle Torque

I've been using 100 NM per the manual, but man that seems tight. It's warping the washer behind the axle nut as well as the chain slack indicator.

Re: Rear Axle Torque

I torqued mine to 72.5 and had no problems at all. Actually my torque wrench only does whole numbers, so we put it at 72 then had to tighten it a tiny bit more to get one of the cotter pin holes to line up.

Re: Rear Axle Torque

How important is it to torque it up?
Apparently on a buell you have to make sure it is at the right torque....
But for an 2003 SV650S...how important is it to be torqued exactly right?
I hear most of the tyre places don't even use a torque wrench when they pull your wheel off to replace the tyre...

somebody? anybody?

Re: Rear Axle Torque

I am confused on the proper rear axle torque for a 2005 model. The manual says 100 nm. The 2nd generation Haynes book says 65nm. The consensus is 72.5 ft/lbs is correct. I believe that roughly translates to 98nm. Others have said 100nm is way too tight. So I should set the torque wrench to??

Re: Rear Axle Torque

The difference between 98 Nm and 100 Nm is 2%. Even freshly calibrated click-type wrenches have that much variability. Add to that axle and nut variability make that 2% meaningless.

Set for 98 Nm 2nd gen.

Re: Rear Axle Torque

It is confusing. I guess the bottom line is 72.5 lbs is correct. I bought my torque wrench, check the specs and get 3 different answers. I was all ready to do some maintenance. Thanks for the help.
