    Slayer 70 2013 torque settings

    Does anyone know a link for the torque settings of the 2013 Slayer? Chasing a creak and think the problem may be over tightening.

    From the 2013 tech manual

    Hardware and Torque Specification:

    All custom hardware (alloy thru-bolts, screws, and nuts) requires the use of LOCTITE 262
    (a high strength threadlock). The torque specification unless otherwise stated is 100 to
    110 in*lbs or 11.3 to 12.4 N*m.

    Non custom hardware (steel bolts) requires the use of LOCTITE 242 (blue), a medium
    strength threadlock. The torque specification unless otherwise stated is 60 to 80 in*lbs
    or 6.7 to 9.0 N*m.

    99% likelihood that a creak will be caused by dry metal to metal contact, likely in the main pivot location where the contact points between the 12mm pivot axle and the bearings and the bearings and bearing caps. All metal to metal contact should have some grease on it.

    You were correct rockyuphill. The main pivot was the culprit. Thanks for the torque info.
