    Enduro torque specs?

    Hey enduro folks, since I'm waiting for the local trails to dry up some here in so. cal. I figure its an good time to catch up on some bike maintenance. Does anyone have torque specs for rear linkage (swingarm/shockmount/etc.) for an 02/03 enduro? I'm a hands on guy, and unless bearings are trashed I'll just pop seals off, clean & regrease. Any extra heads up tips perhaps? Thanks in advance, Kit

    i was poking around at special ed's site, and they've got numerous downloads - including a tech manual. you might try that out.
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    90 - 110 inch pounds for the upper shock mounting bolt.

    180 - 200 inch pounds for the lower shock mounting bolt, use blue locktite.

    120 - 140 inch pounds for the link bolts, use blue locktite.

    Tip - make sure there's no dirt in the hex sockets on the link bolts & you use a decent Allen key. The bolts are aluminium & it's easy to round the socket off. I also found 3 from 4 bearings in the link had shot it after just 8 months.
