If you have a jet9 RDO and ever take the lower linkage apart be aware that the tq specs on the pivot bolts are often marked incorrectly as 6 NM. It should be 9NM as stated here on Page 31. https://s3.amazonaws.com/NinerDocs/N...RS_UNIVERS.pdf
I had taken those bolts off yesterday to install the new shift kit. I put it back together and did 6NM (since that was clearly written on the bolt). I also used blue loctite. I took it for a ride today and 30 min in I heard my chain making this odd sound. I stopped and looked down and the pivot bolt fell to the ground. It worked its way all the way out really fast. I usually have headphones on, so I was really lucky to hear it. Also, I was about to hit an aggressive section and I hate to think what would have happened with only one side of that linkage connected. I was lucky to catch it.
6NM seemed really loose, so I looked it up and noticed that they state it is a mistake on many of the bolts. I also did red loctite this time just to be sure.
