New 919, new tires, who's got free torque specs?!

hey all, very happy to be rocking a 919 - just started riding last April and this is quite a nice upgrade from a Shadow 750...

does anybody have info. on torque specifications for the front brake caliper mounting points? I was able get the axle nuts, and pinch bolt specs, but I'm hurting for those four little bolts...

any help much appreciated! or generally a link to torque specs for this bike? I'm sure I'll pick up the manual at some point, but right now, I need to worry about getting my wheels back on, they usually come in handy

ride safe!

22 ft/lbs. The bolts are listed as ALOC type, which means they come with a locking compound applied to the threads which only works for one installation, explaining why Honda recommends replacing the bolts every time they are removed, probably for liability reasons. Having said that, I can't remember the last time I replaced those bolts on any bike I've worked on, and as long as you are diligent about getting them properly retightened there is no reason why they shouldn't last the life of the motorcycle.

I leave the choice of whether to replace them or not to you.

Oh, and welcome aboard!


If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.
