So to add to this thread. On our Sister site FZ10.0rg people are questioning the accuracy of the Yamaha manual in regard to the stated torque spec of 137 FtLbs. on the rear axle nut. Saying that that seems to be too much, must be an error in the manual, never seen it this high on any other bike etc. etc.
Since I am doing this tomorrow now I am wondering who may be accurate. People that say there have been errors before in Yamaha manuals because they meant 137 newton meters instead of foot pounds. WTH? now who do you trust? 137 NM is roughly 101 ftLBS of torque. This would seem to be more in line with many other bikes out there similar in design and HP to the FZ-10.
Any comments there?
