*whew* that's a mouthful.

Does anyone know how tight I should torque the pivot bolt for a superbike sidestand? It's a generic 748/996/998 sidestand...

Thanks,
Tigre

The answer is very lightly to feel. Too much torque and this happens very easily will cause the kick stand to pinch the bracket causing it to drag instead of snapping open or closed. So you tighten it till it starts to drag and back it of ever so sightly then tighten the jam nut on the back side and check it for drag. Very often just tightening the jam nut will cause it to tighten too much.
