Changing the front tire on my 2014 XC...need to know what the torque specs are for the axle and/ or brake calipers. Any other info would be appreciated.

Having my work do it, and they know nothing about Victory's.....

I do it all wrong. I just tighten it up, call it good enough.
Same here joseph, only things I use a tension wrench for are heads mains and big ends, the rest is experience.

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.
