    Meta 5.5.1 rear shock bushing tightness
    Hi guys

    I have a Meta 5.5.1 and am servicing my rear shock and bushings.

    How tight must all the bolts be...the ones mounting the RP23 shock and the ones on the cantilever?

    They all seem to have been previously loktited in place and am wondering what the refit procedure is.

    Thanks:thumbsup:

    I've swapped swingarms and shocks on my Meta's before. Just tightened as much as I could using multi tools so as to not over torque. I always use a light thread locker.No problems since. One of my metas needs a shock bush shim to prevent shock rattle but that's due to mfg tolerance.
