    Can someone tell me the torque settings for all the fixings on the suspension pivots, shock, rocker, etc on a DW Flux?

    Thanks in advance.

    Flux Torque Specs on Turner Website

    The torque specs are on the Turner website here. They are listed in the last of the Flux FAQ's. However, the torque spec for the shock bolts is high and after discussing with Greg at Turner, he recommended using half of what they have listed (i.e., about 3 ft. lbs. instead of the 7 ft. lbs. listed).

    Thanks, but the last FAQ is replacement parts - Dealer list/online store, & no other FAQ's mention the Torque settings.

    I had these noted down from another post:

    rotor top: (T25) 4 ft lbs
    main rotor (T40) 17 ft lbs
    lower rotor 8 ft lbs

    the main pivot tallies but the others don't.

    I take it the Clevis bolts are the rotor top bolts and the dwlink are the lower rotor?

    cheers,

    Andrew

    SCUBAPRO - you beat me too it!!

    Please clarify location;

    Main Pivot 17 ft lbs - Bottom Pivot Front Triangle????
    DW Link 11 ft lbs - Bottom Pivot Rear Triangle??????
    Shock Bolts 7 ft lbs - Top & Bottom bolts
    Clevis Bolts 5 ft lbs - Rear Triangle top seat stay pivot????

    Which is the Rocker Pivot?????

    Sorry to be a pain but the old Horst Link diagram was spot on!

    Just need confirmation of the torques now - I might be riding round with too little torque in the top and bottom bolts now :-(

    I am loath to tighten the top set as they need all the suspension unbolted to get access to them to torque them from the inside (turner should swap them round for a future version so you can torque them from the outside). Plus I broke one as have others on the forum and had to order a pivot service kit to get a replacement bolt, so I don't want to risk it again.

    The new style replacement seatstay rocker bolts can be torqued to spec from the outside, right?

    the post I got them from I think also got them from Turner, but I can't find it.

    I was being organised and starting a notebook with all the relevant torques for my bike, but now I have got to mess it up and scrub some bits out :-(

    I thought the torques were a little lower for the bottom rotors when I did them up at 8ft lbs.

    Can you get these put on the FAQ on the Turner site in case someone else needs it?

    They are, on the Turner website on the top right of the homepage hover over Support and then click on FAQ's. The FAQ's open on the "General" page, the third "tab" over is for the Flux, click on it. The last FAQ on the Flux page is "Torque wrench specifications for my Turner are?", click on that to get the torque specs.

    Hope this helps, and I agree that this is more convoluted to get to than it could be. It took me a while to figure out there were tabs for the different bikes on the FAQ page.

    aha - I checked only the general page on the faq quickly b4 I posted - doh!

    8ftlbs for the dw-link, as I had down previously, is def too low as it had come loose when I checked last night.

    Now I just want someone to recommend a torque wrench that fits between the frame so I can torque the clevis bolts from the inside...
