torque setting for rear wheel pinch bolt
on: March 12, 2016, 02:37:45 PM
Sorry if this is posted elsewhere, can any tell me the torque settings for the pinch bolt. I've misplaced my owners manual and have found a number of different settings for VFRs 1st to 6th generation.

Thanks in advance

Trevor

According to a manual I found online for the 2014 model the settings are

Torque: 88 N·m (9.0 kgf·m, 65 lbf·ft).

If you need a pdf manual try

http://about.hondampe.com.au/Owners_Manuals#Road

It is an Australian site but the manuals seem to be the same.

Checking the pdf you have confused me.
They say 55ft pounds. Where did you see 65?

Hi I cut and pasted it from the manual for VFR800FE-2014 from the site I gave you.

It looks like I may have downloaded the wrong manual and it may be for the 2014 VFR not the Crossrunner so best go with the figures you found in the (hopefully correct) PDF.

My manual for the 2015 version Crossrunner gives 55 as well. I am surprised it is different from the VFR as I thought the swinging arm was the same on both models.

Sorry about that!
