Torque specs

I'm doing some work on a friends 08 DX. What are the torque specs for the rear axel, front axel and fork tube nuts?

Rear axle nut - 140/150 ft/lbs

Front Axle Nut 50/55 ft/lbs

Fork Tube Nut (at the top of each shock) - 16/43 ft/lbs

Fork pinch Bolts 31/34 ft/lbs.

Thanks Drew, but 16/43 for the fork tubes? Seems like quite a spread.

The 16 to 43 ft·lb numbers are correct. It's an o-ring seal so torque value isn't critical. Tight enough not to come loose but don't exceed 43 ft·lbs.

Careful with the fork tube nuts if you are taking them off. Big spring under there.

Double checked the form tube cap - accurate. Obviously, just get it decently tight and you'll be fine

What's the torque specs for the rear rotor bolts? I found out the hard way that the caliper won't slide off without removing the rotor.

Rear brake disc is 30-38 ft/lbs.

I've had the rear wheel off a few times, as well as the calipers. Never had to remove the brake disc from the wheel to do this. You should be able to rotate the caliper up and out of the way.

I think in the tech section I saw all the torque specs for the whole bike listed you can print and save them. Look around the site or do a search and it will come up.

Thanks Drew. On my 03 I can get the caliper off without removing the rotor, but with the Brembo caliper I couldn't get it off without removing the rotor.

Anyone have the torque value for the caliper mounting bolts and the handlebar riser bolts?

Looking for the torque spec for the velocity stack to airbox screws, the ones that bolt everything the the intake.
