This has to be on here somewhere, but I cannot find it. Torque spec for the 6 clutch spring bolts on a 2000 m900?

Thanks...

Probably why I can't find anything about it then....locktite or anything like that?
Thanks

i sent norm the last one i broke :)

i think the torque setting is 5 ftlb, but i wouldnt use a torque wrench, just a t-handle just until snug, no more.

(the pressure of the spring keeps the bolt from coming out, thats why no locktite is needed)

Actually the bolt clamps the spring cap to the post, there is no spring tension on the bolt.

The spring pushes against the cap which, in turn, pushes on the bolt. So, yes, there is spring tension on the bolt, transmitted through the body of the cap.

Well yeas and no, torqued to 5nm, the resultant clamping force is far and above the force of the spring so as to render it insignificant.

The point being the force of the spring does not prevent the bolts from backing out.

I suspect it will be listed in inch/pounds, not ft/pounds.

Apparently it does, considering that I didn't torque mine down at all and they haven't budged.

Lt Snyder's book specifies 6nm or 4 lb/ft or as MonsterHooligan and Chupa states.

I did so when replacing my pressure plate and clutch pack and everything is good.

PM me an address....I've a broken post along with the hub I'll donate.

@Vinick2006: But yea, don't tighten those bolts much at all...I've learned the hard way...dang post bruised my leg through my gear! (though I suppose that's better than it having hit some pedestrian?)
