A cautionary note on drain plug torque.
Maybe this has been covered, but I thought I would post a cautionary tale about torque specs.
Purchased a lightly used M1100 Evo this winter (man is that fun!) and decided to change the oil last week. I have a copy of the manual, and in section 3 "Maintenance operations" in the description of changing the oil, after describing cleaning the magnet it says "Tighten the plug to 42 Nm." I thought that seemed a bit much, so I poked around a bit and found 42 Nm listed as the drain plug torque on several sites, including this forum and a Youtube video.
Well, as you might guess, 42 Nm is just too much torque for the 5 mm hex to take. I put the wrench on it, but gave up well before it clicked. But, that was not before buggering the plug up a bit and not being able to get it out. Put the bike on the truck, took it to the shop, and thankfully, the pro there got it out forthwith.
Then I got smart and looked at the table of "Engine torque settings" and indeed, for "Oil drain plug with magnet" it says 20 Nm. That's more like it, and after more poking around I found other threads that indicate this. Perhaps older Monsters had a bigger plug that took more torque and the description in the manual was not updated? Regardless, my advice is to trust your gut when it comes to not putting too much torque on something and avoid the stress of worrying that you might have broken a case half. Also, the 42 Nm appears in the 796 manual (wife's bike).
