I do it all wrong. I just tighten it up, call it good enough.

Remember it's aluminum or you'll be starting a stripped threads thread.

I have a video here that shows you all you need to know about installing the front wheel.
The install part starts at the 5:00 mark which I have adjusted in the link.
Hope this helps.

Depot, for me its not a matter of seeing how tight I can get it without stripping something. I simply snug it up, that's all that's needed.


Fact is unless you buy a new torque wrench every year its not accurate anyway. A few years ago on the Goldwing forum we had a guy who worked in a tool calibration and certification lab for the gov. He showed us calibration results and amazingly enough the cheap harbor freight torque wrench stayed in specs as long as the snap on. In the case of the snap on it was worth having it calibrated every year because of its initial cost. However it cost more to have that done than just buying a new one of the less expensive brans and replacing once a year.
