    What do torque the two nuts that set timing?

    15 ft/lbs, 17 for the center. Use some lock tight.

    Torques are as follows....
    Bolt for wheel (13mm)(I added
    blue Loctite) = 15 ft. lbs. Oil the hole before installing and a screwdriver
    lodged between a tooth and a motor bolt holds it for torquing.
    Cover screws (5mm) = 6-8 ft. lbs. = 72-96 in. lbs

    Torque rookie here. I tightened my timing wheel bolts too tight with my socket wrench before I put the torque wrench on the bolts to torque them. Well, I kept applying the torque, and applying without a click on the wrench and stripped out the threads on the wheel. Just sayin, be careful....

    No torque wrench for me on the advance adjustment bolts, because I had no spec to guide me. So far my wheel is holding its adjustment after about 6 months and 6000 miles so I must have used enough and I caused no damage. Both of those bolts are between 10 and 15 ft lb and are about equal, I do have a bit of a feel for torque but my hands are not a torque wrench by any means. The center bolt I had a number so it got torqued to 17 ft-lb per the service manual spec.

    My instructionscame with "tighten two botls 12 to 15 ft-lbs"at the top of the page.
    I tightened to 14 and have had no problems.

    I am worried now. I haven't installed them yet but I didn't torque the outer ones. I just put a drop of blue on them and then I made them tight. Have I made a bad mistake? The centre one I will do to 17lb though.

    7-year-old post I know, but I have to weigh in on this one. Too many people are overthinking these torque settings on bolts there is most likely a torque setting for every bolt on the bike, but do you use a torque wrench to bolt your seat back down? Tight is tight All you need to do is use a little common sense when tightening down a large bolt or a small bolt. The two small ones on the timing gear you would not take a half inch drive ratchet and try to muscle it as tight as you can. If you do you probably shouldn't be doing your own mechanics work. Torque wrenches are meant for, i m o, tightening down heads connecting rods or where you have multiple bolts that need to be tightened at the same torque. ... By the way, what is the torque spec for the bolts on the license plate?

    The torque setting for those small bolts on the timing wheel changed as they were being stripped out. Lloydz send me a new wheel back then for that reason. Probably best to call them to confirm torque. On the second wheel I was told just snug with loctite.
