    Guide to torque on a cone?

    I've got some play in my M525 rear hub, they're (front and rear) probably due for servicing and repacking since they have 500+ miles on them now. I did a search for 'XT hubs' and found one tutorial that mentioned tightening, then backing off 2/3ds, good write up by the way .

    I've only repacked Shimano hubs on one other occasion ('96 Raleigh that has been neglected the past 5 years and rust had set in) so I don't want to screw these up by overtightening - how tight do I go before backing them off?

    yu just need to reach a point were there is y tiny bit of play in the axle when the QR is unclamped and that goes away when clamped..... also the park tool site has a good pictorial....you don't need t get them very tight...
