Re: axle nut

Mate, I use a big 32mm spanner and do it up tight...never had one fall off nor has the back wheel stopped spinning 'cause it was too tight .

Re: axle nut

I used the wrench that came in the tool kit and a long cheater bar to get it nice and tight. I have had no problems.

Re: axle nut

If it is too tight it is possible for it to hinder your rear brake (on the 929 anyway).

Re: axle nut

An 1-1/4" socket fits fine if you don't have a 32mm in your box...

Started as metric, and 83 is the conversion. And they do some testing to know what is the best compromise between stessing the threads, binding of parts, and enough torque to make sure things don't back out due to vibrations. In some cases just a couple ft-lbs can make a real difference.

Re: axle nut

Honestly, tightening the nut up too much won't cause that problem. Besides to tighten it up way too much, you would need to put a very long wrench on the end of the socket and keep on turning.

Re: axle nut

good find oakley. its funny how r15suk says it doesnt matter when you clearly pointed out what the factory book says. i dont know about you , but ive got a torque wrench in my tool box and important nuts and bolts such as the one holding 1 of the 2 wheels you have; you better believe that its getting torqued.
also, baketech good info on the 1 and a quarter socket fitting just as well as the 32. becausein fact i do have a 1 1/4 and not the 32...saves me a couple bucks.
