    2009 parker 1 torque specs

    does anyone know the proper torque specs, specifically for the rear suspension pivot points?
    i've got one hell of a creaking noise coming from my pivot points, and am going to remove the hardware/bushings to lube up....i just have no idea what setting to torque them back down to.

    come on, nobody?
    i ended up just washing all the dirt out of the pivots and lubed them with silicone....the noise is gone but i'd still like to know the proper torque settings.

    Try for about 15-20nm. This is not the real specs but seems about right for the Parker pivots, Most 4-bar linkage bikes run 12-15 so I figure maybe run a little more with the larger pivots of the parker.
