torque on shock mounts
« on: March 13, 2013, 08:14:36 PM »
Can anyone share what the torque should be on the rear shock mounts? I am speaking about the chromed acorn nuts (upper and lower). Bike is a C5 Classic. Thanks

I believe it is 4.00 kg/m. I'm not sure what that is in imperial measurements.

29 lb/ft of torque or 4.00 kg/m torque.
