    Rear Suspension Torque Specs for the XC-x04?

    We had this discussion before our forum was created, but did anyone ever find out what the torque specs are for the rear suspension pivots?

    More generally, is ther a suggested maintainence schedule for these?

    Personally I dont use a torque wrench on small bolts or nuts 7mm and smaller because of the stretch sometimes even with Nm wrenches. Generally once it stops then give it a snug is good enough using 2 fingers not a gorilla grip.

    Well, I'll be the first to admit I'm a torque-dork. I use a torque wrench for anything I can find a spec on. I guess it's just some wierd obsession I have.

    Not even close to the the first nor the last brotha. I have been in the moto industry since the mid '70's when bolts an nuts were at least 1mm fatter, then the weight came into a factor so they shrunk. I learned on 100-125cc cylinder/head studs that were 6mm but very long that the length would flex while torquing and snap also clutch basket bolts with a bottom out shoulder would snap before spec. Being young then it took awhile to realize this so I learned how to torque by feel, easier said than done but for the amount of motor rebuilds I did it became normal. I have been called a fool for posting my thoughts on this but at least it comes from years of experience and not text book, if you have gone or go to college you will understand, I didnt do college. What works best for you is the way to go never let people intimidate you into doing or thinking differently.
