Question about the torque values listed under the 'TECH' pages as they pertain to the R.

Does the R and the other's have the same torque value for the following:

pinch bolts (8 that hold the forks in the triple tree)

Fork stem nut (big 30mm bolt ontop of the castle nut, in the stearing head)


I haven't gotten my service manual in yet and need to adjust the fall away, Guitarman sent me the instructions and I beleive that I can handle it w/o much of a problem, but the only thing I don't have is the torque settings. Thanks in advance.

The 8 fork pinch bolts are 32.5 ft-lbs. The big fork stem nut is listed 45 to 55 ft-lbs. Just fyi, that big ol' nut is actually a 1-1/2" nut not metric. I found out, after a bit a headscratching, from folks on this forum that while MOST bolts etc. are metric they ALL are not!!
