Torques are as follows....
Bolt for wheel (13mm)(I added blue Loctite) = 15 ft. lbs. Oil the hole before installing and a screwdriver lodged between a tooth and a motor bolt holds it for torquing.
Cover screws (5mm) = 6-8 ft. lbs. = 72-96 in. lbs.
Floorboard bolts (8mm) = 35 ft. lbs.
Really, its not a difficult job. Takes about 1/2 hour.

The center bolt on the timing wheel should be 17 ft-lb, not 15. I used 204 in-lb because I had a wrench for that and did not have a low range ft-lb wrench at the time.

Jim
When I bought the wheel, the instructions indicated 15 ft/lbs for the two adjustment bolts, so that is what I mentioned in my video.
However, since then, I was informed that they changed it to between 6-8 ft/lbs, which to me seems a bit light.
If I were to adjust it again, I would probably put it to 10 ft/lbs, just to be in the middle.

I didn't put any on because I figured I would be adjusting it several times.
Mind you I doubt they would move since both are currently at 15 ft/lbs as that was the original torque specs.
I think though that once I have it set to my liking I will put some on and only torque it to 10 ft/lbs because I feel that 6-8 (the new specs) is too light.

i torqued mine to 8 ft lbs. i think if you torque much higher, you will never get the bolts loose once the bolt heats up. maybe thats why the re spec'd to 6 - 8.

Did mine last week. Watched Rylan's video and followed it. No loctite on adjustment bolts. Had a small oil leak from the cover though. Goin into it this week so will loctite the adjustments and re torque the cover bolts. I used the reusable gasket.

i bought the reusable gasket from loydz before i took mine apart. i am glad i did because my gasket came off in pieces and had to scrap some of the old stuff off. and of course the stupid local dealer has to order the gasket. And he wonders why i didnt buy my bike from him. :)

when you go to tighten bolts get each one not quite snug and do ever other one.
Then go back and tighten them down to spec doing every other one or in criss cross pattern.

Doing this you will be applying even pressure on cover

Johnny has a good point. i guess i have always done that , criss cross the tightening pattern. also if you have a small leak.. did you use the old gasket? I dont know why anyone would recommend using an old gasket for anything.
