    1983 r80 G/S Oil Pressure Switch

    Does anyone know the torque spec for the oil pressure switch on a 1983 r80 G/S?

    Tight enough so it doesn't leak. Really, just tighten to the point where the crush washer begins to flatten, then maybe a skosh more.

    Snowbum lists a value for '85-on bikes mid way down this page:

    I replaced the oil pressure switch yesterday. 10 minutes, minimal mess and torqued it to 25Nm. No leaks and working as it should. Thanks for the link.
