Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.
This father is changing his clutch springs and friction plates and I just realized I need some tourque specs.
How about a sticky with torque specs under technical help?
I figure the cover bolts are the same 8mm 7ish foot lbs as the oil cover bolts but what about the clutch spring bolts?
PS, I know it's a good day because the gasket is perfect!

I was going to say things look way too well organized and clean, an impossibility in my garage. Then I felt mildly vindicated by seeing the partially removed side cover gasket. Cleaning the gasket surface should create a mess I am more familiar with.:rolleyes:

Happy Father’s Day DrStimpy!

No hammer today but I get extra credit for the pry bar!

Are you sure you didn't take a swing with anything? ha ha

This should help, just maybe not with torquing though!

The old friction plates don't look horrible, but they didn't perform very well.

I'm very impressed so far with the Barnett parts. Much more progressive engagement instead of our usual on off switch. And I haven't noticed any increase in lever effort. I love how easy this bike is to work on!

Really? I found a link to manuals but the service manual link gave me a bunch of blacked out pages at the torque specs

That was yesterday wasn't it? Go look again. Thanks to Elime who had posted the torque specs, I was able to copy that and created a sticky for you.

I tend to trust a subjective feel rather than a torque wrench for these lightly torqued smaller fasteners. Even when using a torque wrench I sometimes will stop before the “click” thinking “that’s good enough” as my blurry memory recalls how much force was used on dissassembly.
Admittedly this is poor precision but I dislike blind trust in a device known to fail occasionally.

Yeah, Fred, I do the same for the oil filter cover and the weep hole screw on the head....but you and I have many years of experience...... some others do not have a good feel for torque values vs type and size of bolt/screw.
Thus I always recommend using a good torque wrench, even when deciding to use 20% less than listed torque.
