    Sette Ace Torque Specs

    Anybodey have the torque specs on the frame bolts for all of the pivots and what not? Iv emailed pricepoint, and they said they had to contact the manufacturer and im short on patience.

    Its amazing what I can get my hands on.

    Sette Ace torque values for rear suspension pivot points/bearings = 150 inch/lbs or 17nM (Newton Meters)

    Is that for all of the pivot bearings on the frame? What about the ones that hold the shock?

    Not sure if they are the same or not. I got those torque specs a while back for another Ace owner. I will send them a email, might take a few hours for a response.

    My Contact at PP forwarded my email to Sette, Usually they email me a bit slower but usally a day or so and I could have it for you. You might want to send Highdell a PM, he might have the specs for his Flite and they are probably the same.

    Bummer if people started wrenching on the smaller bearings with an extra 44"lbs of tourque. You might have had to order them some replacements f.o.c. from your contacts at PP.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    I may have the inch/lb numbers wrong, but if one was to tighten the small bearing bolts to the larger main pivot bearing spec, might have overtightened, no?? Just sayin.

    The first set of specs came from price point, the diagram came from Sette. I would go ahead and believe the one from Sette, it appears to be more in depth

    Fantastic...we really need to archive these specs and other specs somewhere. Maybe a sticky on this forum?

    If we have enough documentation we can request from the mods to sticky it for us.

    That also works. Having all the info in one place can help current and future owners.
