Fuel Tank mounting bolts torque spec
« on: February 15, 2014, 07:09:37 pm »
Anyone know what the torque spec is for the two big bolts on left and right side (under the fairing) that hold  on the fuel tank?

Unfortunately I am 2000 miles away from home and my service manual. But I'm sure that there are several members with service manuals who can look up and tell you.

If they are the two front bolts (looks like a bolt with a large washer) they are 20Nm.  All the other bolts seem to be 5 or 6Nm.  The union into which the fuel hose goes is 15Nm.

Hey, first time I have used the new workshop manual!!

Thank you.

Those are the ones.  They look to be M7 so 20 NM sounds about right.  Just got the bike back from having the heads and ECU replaced and it leaked coolant all over my garage floor.  The shop being closed for the weekend and needing the bike Monday I decided to fix it myself.  After taking the fairing off I noticed that both those fuel tank bolts were also loose.

Does run better though.
