    Lightbulb R60 Torque Values

    Maybe I missed them, but Im having a tough time locating torque settings for my 60 R60. Know where to find the specs? Tips?

    Thanks.

    What are you torquing? The head bolts are 25 ft-lbs.

    Im starting with attaching bolts for the wheels, e.g. axle pinch bolts, for starters.

    Thanks.

    In reality, head bolt and clutch bolts are probably the only thing that I actually a torque wrench on. Most everything else I just use my calibrated elbow...I get it as tight as it was coming off. Just my experience.

    But I googled "bmw motorcycle torque settings" and found a few things. Interesting, I found an old post of mine for things on an R60...how cool is that!!!

    If you don't have much experience, then I guess you have to go with the numbers. But generally "tight enough" seems to work for me.

    How about asking at BMW of Cambridge, the "Black Bike" people. Plenty of YB members know quite a bit about /2 machines. Are you on the YB forum?
